Student Experience

Designed for Today’s Professional

As an elite leadership program of higher education, SCMS grows, adapts, and transforms in response to an accelerating, ever-changing credit union industry. Our purpose is reflected in intelligent course design and a strategy that focuses on expanding student capabilities and enhancing value to credit unions. Additionally, SCMS helps students develop powerful, personalized toolkits that guide and propel them toward more complex levels of leadership and responsibility.

Students are expected to actively engage with one another, wrestle with rigorous and often unfamiliar content, and persevere in addressing tough problems (Wiener and Pimentel, "Practice What You Teach").

Students will:

  • Experience a blend of development and growth experiences
  • Attend a combination of in-person and virtual live courses
  • Be assigned self-paced microlearning modules, reading, and related course assignments
  • Experience a variety of collaboration and engagement opportunities
