PCC ID: 16066
Name: PCC Proposal to Establish a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Financial Risk Management
Proposed: 09/12/2017
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The Robert H. Smith School of Business proposes to establish a 12-credit Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Financial Risk Management. The purpose of this certificate is to offer professional development to practitioners and regulators in the area of financial risk management. Following the financial crisis and enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, financial institutions, corporate treasuries, and financial regulators are placing ever greater emphasis on measuring and managing the risks confronting their organizations or the ones they regulate. Many professionals who are responsible for these activities require additional skills and exposure to recent advancements in the field. Consequently, the certificate will be beneficial to people currently in these roles as well as those looking to move into this field.
