"I had been in lending for years prior to attending the School. Having previously worked for larger organizations, the calculations (ROE) covered in the schools provided me a different way to look at pricing relationships. For those who come from smaller organizations, the Schools provide a manageable way to look at how they are pricing deals based on risk and return."
- Billy Weiland, Senior Vice President, Commercial Credit Manager, UMB Bank, NA
