Upscale Your Expertise to Manage Financial Business Risks Effortlessly

Risk is the main cause of uncertainty in any organisation and can come from both internal and external sources. Thus, companies increasingly focus more on identifying risks and managing them before they even affect the business. The ability to manage risk will help companies act more confidently on future business decisions.

Due to the prevailing focus on risk, risk management jobs have opened up and the scope trail is massive. Professionals in financial institutions and corporate need a solid understanding of financial risk measurement and management. This course deepens the understanding of modern risk management concepts, theories, practices and trends while introducing various risk management concepts, tools, and techniques, by using an integrated approach.


The primary method of instruction will be through LIVE lectures that will be beamed online via Internet to student desktops/laptops or classrooms. This course would use a mix of pedagogical tools such as lectures, case discussions, Excel simulations etc. in the learning process. Students are expected to read the textbooks or other assigned readings outside of class and participate in the critical evaluation of the material through class discussion and in-class exercise. The course may require participants to work on individual/group assignments and/or projects. The main objective of such assignments/projects will be to help the participants apply their conceptual learning in the course to actual organizational decision scenarios. All enrolled students will also be provided access to our SLIQ Cloud Campus through which students may access other learning aids, reference materials, assessments, case studies, projects and assignments as appropriate. Throughout the duration of the course, students will have the flexibility to reach out to the professors, real time during the class or offline via our SLIQ Cloud Campus to raise questions and clear doubts.


A minimum of 75% attendance is a prerequisite for the successful completion of this course. The course may require participants to work on individual/group assignments and/or projects and the participants will have to secure the minimum pass marks in the respective evaluation components. Evaluation methodology is the discretion of the faculty. The methodology includes online exams, case analysis, class contribution and any other component as decided by the faculty. Participants who successfully complete the same and satisfy the requisite attendance criteria, will be awarded a certificate of completion.
