Resembling an MBA-level course design, it consists of lectures and in-class exercises focused on these topics:

  • Addressing Increased Expectations for Stronger Risk Oversight
  • Pinpointing Critical Elements of an ERM Process
  • Ensuring ERM is Integrated with Strategic Planning - Creating a Strategic Lens on Risks
