WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 23, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — CampusMBA, the award-winning education division of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), today announced it is teaming up with The Lincoln Leadership Institute at Gettysburg (LLI) to offer a unique and innovative team and leadership development program, A Transformational Journey from Gettysburg, a comprehensive on-site training program which uses the Battle of Gettysburg as a metaphor to address current real estate finance industry challenges.
“As our members seek to find new ways to improve their business operations given the changes our industry is facing, CampusMBA is expanding our training offerings to incorporate unique and comprehensive training options to meet these goals,” said Jeffrey Schummer, MBA’s Vice President of Education. “By partnering with The Lincoln Leadership Institute, our members will have access to distinctive leadership techniques and tools to compete and be successful in this fast paced market environment.”
The three-day program includes time both in the classroom and on the hallowed ground of Gettysburg’s National Military Park. The battlefields become a learning laboratory as participants retrace the steps of some of history’s greatest leaders. Each case study is then thoroughly debriefed by participants and the concepts learned are applied to the industry’s challenges and needs.
“It is an honor to partner with CampusMBA to provide leadership development tailored to the world of real estate finance as an expansion of their offerings to the mortgage industry,” said Steven B. Wiley, President of The Lincoln Leadership Institute. “Our commitment is to partner with CampusMBA to equip the mortgage industry with tools and techniques that promote professionalism, ethics, and leadership, establish trust and provide sound advice and guidance in helping today’s borrower obtain a mortgage.”
