Commercial Lending School

The IBA Commercial Lending School was founded to provide mid-level bank officers and commercial loan officers a thorough understanding of commercial lending administration. The purpose of the school is to provide that information by:

  • Focusing on the operating cycle of a business, and the key variables for long-term success;
  • Helping students develop their analytical skills and management evaluation techniques;
  • Acquiring an awareness of the economic environment and how it affects the lending decisions;
  • Understanding the borrower and loan management alternatives available to a lender in the event of loan default; and 
  • Providing a strong foundation of financial analysis, along with in-depth case studies that allow the student to apply lessons learned.
