Identify and Manage your Risks!

The Continuing Education Center offers a new certified program Enterprise Risk Management, starting February 13, 2014.

Risk is inherent in all business activities of an enterprise. The implementation of an enterprise-wide risk management leads to a sustainable business success by decreasing the costs of risk and by the utilization of favorable chances.

"Enterprise risk management deals with the identification and the management of risks that are inherent in the different domains of the enterprise. The consistent implementation of the risk management within the entire enterprise requires people with a common risk understanding and mutually consistent management methodologies. The needed knowledge and competences are taught in the “Enterprise Risk Management” course in a theoretical solid and applicable form." Prof. Dr. Walter S.A. Schwaiger, MBA (Academic Director, Vienna University of Technology)

The program “Enterprise Risk Management” offers a systematic approach to the risk management within the entire enterprise. The program focusses on the basic concepts of an enterprise-wide risk management in theory and practice. The program covers a wide range of risk domains, it is related to practical problems, is has an international orientation and correspondingly it is held in English language.

The program is designed to meet the needs of (current and potential) general managers and risk managers as well as auditing, finance and accounting professionals, controllers, production managers, constructors and all other domain specialists who have gained first experiences in risk management, who want to make a career move into the direction of risk management or who are interested in the functioning and the implementation of an effective enterprise risk management.
