Columbia University’s Master of Science in Enterprise Risk Management prepares risk professionals to design and implement ERM programs that enhance all decision-making processes, ranging from strategic decisions to traditional mitigation decisions. It also provides a robust toolkit of advanced risk management capabilities and competencies that can be applied to enhance value at both the enterprise level and at the traditional silo risk management level. Multiple courses on business communication and interaction provide the skills required to gain the stakeholder buy-in critical for successful adoption of ERM techniques. The core coursework provides insights on how to utilize these ERM and risk management tools and techniques across a variety of formalized risk management frameworks commonly in use.
Gain Multifaceted and Practical ERM Knowledge
The program has five distinct features critical for ERM:
A focus on all aspects of ERM. Our curriculum spans all aspects of ERM, including ERM framework, risk governance, risk identification, risk quantification, risk decision-making, and risk messaging.
A focus on all risk sources. We address all sources of risk including strategic (e.g. strategy execution risk, competitor risk, etc.); operational (HR, cyber-security, etc.); financial (market risk, credit risk, etc.); and insurance risk (e.g. pricing risk).
A customizable course of study. Recognizing that ERM is a broad field with various roles, we offer flexible course options for you to select a deeper dive into the content most suited to your needs.
A balance of skills. You will supplement technical ERM skills with business communication skills required to effectively navigate the ERM landscape and gain buy-in from key internal and external stakeholders.
A practical approach. Develop practical ERM tools and techniques that have been tested and proven in the marketplace by our faculty, who are globally recognized ERM leaders.
