About the course
The programme is designed to understand issues that arise in managing risks in non-financial corporations. The focus would be on understanding strategic implications of risks emanating from fluctuations in commodity prices, foreign exchange rates and interest rates. Using examples drawn from real world corporate risk management successes and failures, the programme would also enable participants to evaluate the consequences of alternative risk management policies.
