Advanced Financial Risk Management
This course begins with a comprehensive examination of how financial risk arises, why it must be managed, and what the real-life, historical consequences are of inattention to or purposeful disregard of the basic principles of risk management. After a deep dive into current practice in value at risk and stress testing, we focus on specific areas of operational risk, spot risk, forward risk, model risk, and credit risk that are the key financial risks faced by corporations and addressed by risk management professionals.
