Effective Risk Management Oversight for Board Members & Executives


Since the global financial crisis, corporate board members and senior staff have been under pressure to enhance their understandings of risk management.

In the UK this has been formalized into law through the Corporate Governance Code, and similar measures are taking root across the globe. In particular, non-executive directors are now required by most large institutions to demonstrate some understanding of risk management in order to undertake oversight responsibilities.

This course is designed to help you understand how to respond to this challenge.
