Faculty in the Poole College of Management lead the ERM Initiative’s efforts to help pioneer the development of the emergent discipline of enterprise risk management (ERM) through three ways:
- Outreach to business professionals, with its ongoing ERM Roundtable Series and ERM Executive Education for boards and senior executives.
- Research, advancing knowledge and understanding of ERM issues.
- Undergraduate and graduate business education for the next generation of business executives.
Our faculty frequently work with boards of directors and senior management teams to assist them in strengthening their risk oversight processes. Brief bios about the Initiative’s lead faculty and administrative support are included below.
