ERM Graduate Courses Curriculum
While most undergraduate and graduate business schools educate students about specific risk issues affecting businesses today, few offer courses specifically focused on training the next generation of executives on issues affecting enterprise-wide risk management. Recent calls, such as the June 2006 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education, argue that business schools need to expand risk management training for all business students, particularly those in MBA programs. Many argue that skills related to enterprise-wide risk management are becoming an effective core competency for those aspiring to senior executive leadership positions; however, business schools are under-preparing students to assume these responsibilities.
NC State’s College of Management is committed to providing graduate business education about ERM for its students.
Graduate business students, including MBA, Master of Accounting, Master of Economics, and Financial Mathematics students, will be able to take a series of three courses focused on issues related to enterprise risk management.
