On Friday, May 19, Denver’s Executive MBA class 49 welcomed a special speaker for a lunchtime presentation. Mariner Kemper, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of UMB Financial Corporation, shared his insights at a special and opportune time, as the Class 49 students kicked off their Corporate Financial Management section of the first year of their EMBA curriculum.

Kemper spoke on the evolution of the banking industry, specifically how he has seen it change over the years as well as the consistent and constant aspects of the business. He shared information about areas of business that have worked well with new ideas. Kemper also discussed decisions that have been made over the 100-plus year history at UMB, and how his organization has made strategic choices along the way.

At the session, students were able to ask questions and expand on what they have been learning with real instances in banking.

The Executive MBA program extends a big thank you to Mariner Kemper for coming to visit and sharing his knowledge with the students!
