Advanced Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management

The Advanced Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a 15-credit graduate program designed to provide you with the foundational skills, insights, and capabilities necessary to adopt an enterprise-wide approach to managing the myriad of risks an organization faces.  

In this program you learn the need for risk to be managed at the strategic, financial, reputational, and operational levels of an organization; develop a robust enterprise risk management process; and perform accurate and relevant quantitative assessments vital to measuring risk in a variety of contexts. You apply standard quantitative techniques and risk analysis in all aspects of ERM, including the ERM framework, risk governance, risk identification, risk quantification, risk decision-making, and risk messaging.

Courses may be applied toward The Peter J. Tobin College of Business M.S. degree in Enterprise Risk Management or select M.B.A. concentrations.
