WASHINGTON, DC (November 7, 2005) — CampusMBA, the educational arm of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), won the first place Corporate University Best in Class Award (CUBIC) for Most Innovative Industry Resource in a ceremony at the 7th Annual Corporate University Week conference held in Orlando on November 1, 2005. This category recognizes innovative industry resources including, but not limited to, industry publications such as magazines and newsletters, websites, and associations.

“Winning the CUBIC award for Most Innovative Industry Resource exhibits our dedication to providing real estate finance industry professionals of all skill levels and disciplines with products and resources they need to nurture their professional development and career goals,” said Jonathan L. Kempner, president and chief executive officer of MBA. “Being recognized for this honor truly demonstrates that we are not only competitive in the real estate finance industry, but with national players across a variety of disciplines.”

CampusMBA’s goal is to facilitate the learning process and to provide MBA members with a tool to reduce turnover and increase corporate productivity. Through corporate education, companies use CampusMBA’s Web-based self-study courses to educate entire departments or workforces in a professional track through the customized e-ticket program. Organizations without a learning management system, or LMS, can create a customized Corporate Branded University for their staff, complete with e-ticket courses applicable to professional designation programs. Companies with a LMS can license CampusMBA content for in-house use.

“The winners have really set the standards of excellence for all training organizations,” said Carey Bradshaw, director of the CUBIC Awards.

Over 50 corporate universities were competing for this year’s awards. Judging was based on the resource’s level of innovation, usefulness, scope, documented success, utility/usability, and level of adoption. A prestigious panel of leading corporate university experts gathered to objectively evaluate the true effectiveness of world-class corporate universities.
