About the Enterprise Risk Management Initiative

Business professionals are well aware that expectations are growing rapidly for boards of directors, audit committees, and senior executives to design and implement effective enterprise risk management systems to protect and enhance an entity’s value. They are looking for new tools and methods that will help them manage risk more effectively across the enterprise – and to remain competitive.

The ERM Initiative was created to meet this growing need and is funded in part by a $1 million gift from the Bank of America Foundation.
