Financial Risk Management

Courses Summary
Finance has always been based on two pillars: expected returns and risk. In today’s times it is necessary to stress the need to properly weigh the latter when making, or advising others in, financial and investment decisions. The Courses in Financial Risk Management has the objective of presenting advanced techniques and concepts used in modern risk management in our complex global financial system. The courses will consist of a minimum of 16 credits, including five core courses and one seminar. Moreover, graduates will be expected to take the FRM exam in the fall following their graduation.
Classes will take place at Fordham’s Westchester campus
