About This Degree

A certificate program in finance will be of particular interest to financial professionals seeking to update their skills or acquire a new expertise, as well as to graduate students in the School of Business who wish to leverage their advanced degrees by stacking a complementary credential in their skills inventory.

The Certificate in Risk Management prepares individuals for rewarding career progression in the fields of risk management and compliance functions of financial institutions and corporate treasuries.

The curriculum addresses the tools and techniques for managing multiple sources of risk, including counterparty credit risk, market risk, operating risk, and regulatory risk. This program of study includes the subject matter required for the Financial Risk Manager (FRM®) certification administered by the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP), as well as the Professional Risk Manager (PRM™) designation administered by the Professional Risk Manager’s International Association (PRMIA). Students are encouraged to pursue one or both of these credentials along with their certificate.
