Join us for CBMI 2021 to be held on a virtual platform July 25 – 30, 2021. Co-sponsored by SACUBO and the University of Kentucky, the College Business Management Institute (CBMI) offers an intensive course of study in business and financial management for administrators of colleges and universities. Ranging from entry level to advanced, approximately 50 courses will be taught during CBMI 2021 by distinguished faculty who are practicing administrators and leaders in their fields.

CBMI is designed to provide participants with an overview of current issues and procedures applicable to institutions of higher education large and small, public and private. Individuals participate in one week of instruction each summer for three years to earn a certificate of completion. Over 630 business officers and administrators, representing 209 institutions from 26 states, attended CBMI in 2019.

There is no prerequisite to attend CBMI.


CBMI is designed to give participants the opportunity to:

  • Gain a broader perspective of higher education business administration
  • Discuss the latest issues and topics in higher education
  • Learn how other institutions deal with administrative problems
  • Develop professional relationships with colleagues at other institutions
  • Prepare for a promotion

To provide this broad perspective, each course you take may not be specifically related to your field.

  • Academic Departments
  • Accounting or Finance
  • Auxiliary Services
  • Budget or Planning

Treasury Management Track

CBMI has partnered with the Treasury Institute for Higher Education again this year to provide a treasury management track within CBMI. The treasury management track includes the following courses, total 22 hours of instruction:

  • Treasury Management (4 hours)

  • Stewardship of Gift Funds (2 hours)
  • Financial Asset and Liability Management (2 hours)
  • Introduction to Capital Finance (2 hours)

Upon completion of these courses, participants will earn a Certificate of Completion from the Treasury Institute for Higher Education. CBMI attendees who have completed the first-year curriculum may select Treasury Track courses as part of their 2nd year and/or 3rd year program. Participants may complete all of the Treasury Track courses during one week of CBMI. Participants also have the option of enrolling in only the Treasury Track and may also select optional CBMI electives during the times when Treasury Track courses are not offered. Participants may earn CPE credits for all courses.
