Essentials of Consumer Lending will explore strategies for succeeding in the face of competition, focusing on the practical application of current trends in marketing, delivery channels, credit evaluation, decision-making, credit enhancements, and loss prevention strategies.

The workshop will also encourage idea exchanges between the instructor and students, enriched by the instructor’s real-world experiences.
