A major lesson of the global crisis is the imperative need for sound and comprehensive risk governance. Board members and senior executives of banks need to have an integrated view of risk control and value creation. They must be clear on how risk categories interact and impact economic capital allocation and the value of the business; and assess how re–regulation and, Basel 3, will impact the banking industry. In fact, any senior executive working in a business exposed to market, credit, operational or strategic risk, or to the growing concerns of liquidity, reputation and franchise risk should have a knowledge–based overview of risk management. The Risk Management in Banking programme gives you a broad overview of risk governance. Whatever your background, you will benefit from the inclusive, non–technical approach, and feel comfortable learning within an environment more similar to that of a professional workshop.
