Program Details

This exclusive and intensive program, led by the faculty of one of the world’s top business schools, provides participants with an exceptional educational experience. The RMA/Wharton Advanced Risk Management Program gives banking executives analytical frameworks, strategies, and resources to better measure, manage, and monitor risk at their organizations.

In between the two program weeks, you will examine a new area of risk in your organization, reporting findings to the class. In addition to its focus on the known and quantifiable risks of credit, market, and operational, the program focuses on the unknowable and difficult to measure risks, including business, strategic, and reputation.

You will also use tools for modeling risk analysis, critical thinking, and risk scenario planning, while applying your knowledge to current issues facing your organization through risk evaluations.
