Projects in Risk Management

3.00 credit hours

This course is focused on engaging groups of students in identifying, analyzing and making decisions on real-world risk management financial problems. Teams of students will be assigned to a specific client situation drawn from one of two general areas: (i) investments and hedge funds, equity and portfolio management, fixed income and foreign exchange and (ii) risk management with derivatives, credit risk management, risk analytics, regulatory capital, asset liability bank management. This course is structured to be a capstone experience that allows students to leverage the broad range of skills, tools and approaches introduced throughout the program. It is intended to provide an important bridge from work in the classroom to the unstructured, chaotic nature of real world business.
