(previously Emerging Leaders)

MBA of St. Louis has been our local industry’s caretaker since 1928.  As the second oldest chapter in our nation, we have always relied upon our local leaders to ensure mortgage bankers’ prosperous future and strong reputation.  To that end, we are inviting you to help us identify the rising stars in your organization that can help shape the future of mortgage banking through their active participation.  MBA of St. Louis is accepting nominations for our innovative 2020 MortgageU program now through February 29th, 2020.   

Through this MortgageU program, your valued employee(s) will learn more about the mortgage industry and gain leadership skills while becoming an active member of MBA of St. Louis.  Our goal is to help you develop your employee(s) by expanding the depth of their knowledge and broadening their horizons.  You are encouraged to attend the February 12th MBA St. Louis educational luncheon and bring your potential nominee to the learn more about this exciting new program.

Our MortgageU program is designed to give an overview of the loan flow from application to lien release.  Our MortgageU class will visit several area companies in order to gain valuable insight into departmental structures, purposes, challenges and solutions. 

MortgageU tuition for each accepted nominee from your company is only $250 and includes complimentary registration for all the following MBA St. Louis education opportunities: 

  • MortgageU Educational Excursions,
  • MBA Networking Happy Hour events,
  • MBA of St. Louis education luncheons, and

The overall cost for meeting attendance and tuition for the MortgageU program is minimal, but the benefits will greatly enhance your employees’ knowledge and skills.  Space in the MortgageU program is limited, so please submit your nominations by February 29th.  The nominees accepted into the MortgageU Class of 2020 will be announced at the MBA St. Louis Education workshop March 19th.  Invoices will be sent after announcement.
