Risk Management is the new sunrise sector that will gain momentum in the coming years due to global uncertainties related with political policies, unemployment, climatic change, international conflicts, financial manipulation, besides the usual financial ups and downs. With uncertainties in the global world rising, evaluating and mitigating risks becomes more crucial Where enterprise strategies used to be devised for 7-10 years, increasing unforeseen risks have forced the corporate world to now strategise for the short and mid terms. Indians with their analytical minds are expected to be the leaders in this field much like they’ve been in the IT sector. Many of these risks would be considered unforeseen to the untrained management professional, hence the need for trained risk management professionals. The Global Risk Management Institute’s initiative to address this vacuum is a pioneering step and will add great value to industries and economies worldwide. GRMI will be making future business leaders thus implementing the Government’s mission of Make in India at the very highest levels. Based on the current status, industries are waiting to welcome professionals with specialized qualifications and practical experience in evaluating and mitigating business risks. According to financial experts these risk management professionals would be the new corporate world savers of the near future.
The strategic partnership between GRMI and GGSG has been a landmark one and the first of its kind in the sector that entails knowledge sharing, exchange of faculty, exchange programmes for students, among many benefits for the students specifically as GGSG specializes in Risk & Disaster Management, Management of Energy & Natural Resources, Labour Management & Migration, International Governance, Trade and Development, Conflict Management & Post-Conflict Reconstruction, Entrepreneurship, Economy, Culture & Society and International Environmental Issues, while Global Risk Management Institute (GRMI) is the only comprehensive risk management institute in India, going beyond the conventional financial and insurance sectors in its future driven curriculum.
The curriculum with 13 specialized segments covers end-to-end fundamentals of risk management across multiple industry verticals like, finance, manufacturing, banking, retail, hospitality, operational, compliance and credit. Woven into the Curriculum, case studies have been developed in association with Global CXOs of Fortune 500 Companies across the globe and large business houses in India that will help the students to add practical knowledge and experience along with academic excellence. Students of PGCRM would have the option to pursue a 7 to 10 week program in advanced Risk Management in Geneva or online for a Masters in Risk Management with the Geneva Graduate School of Governance. Post completion of the course, each student is guaranteed placement internationally or in India. The Post Graduate Certificate in Risk Management (PGCRM) will be jointly issued by GRMI and GGSG.
