In the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world of today, characterized by constant disruptions and unpredictable challenges, the role of enterprise risk management (ERM) becomes even more critical and complex than before. Having a strong grasp of ERM and business continuity management (BCM) are essential for managing risks, creating value and maintaining the long-term growth and sustainability of an organization.
The Nanyang Enterprise Risk Management programme (Nanyang ERM) enables management and risk executives to gain a more holistic view of risk throughout the organisation, so they can better align their business model and strategies to mitigate risk and achieve better returns.
The curriculum of the Nanyang ERM is specially designed in collaboration with The Risk Management Society (RIMS) to equip course participants with the 5 core competencies which will deepen their knowledge and skills in ERM concepts, processes, tools and frameworks. These core competencies are aligned to the 5 domains of the RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional (RIMS-CRMP©) exam:
- Analyzing the Business Model
- Designing Organizational Risk Strategies
- Implementing the Risk Process
- Developing Organizational Risk Competency
- Supporting Decision Making
Nanyang ERM is the first university programme in Asia to offer a compelling 3-in-1 value proposition:
- Build ERM competencies and learn practical tools, frameworks and roadmaps which can be applied at work straightaway
- Provide a pathway to earn the only globally recognised and accredited RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional (RIMS-CRMP©) credential.
- Gain access to valuable resources from the prestigious global networks of NTU Alumni and RIMS.
Build ERM competencies to mitigate risk and optimise performance
Establish an integrated and proactive risk management approach
Provide a pathway to earn the prestigious RIMS-CRMP credential
- Identify and address risks and opportunities in a proactive manner, thus reducing time spent in the crisis mode and maximising value for the organisation.
- Gain a holistic view of risks throughout the organisation and manage risks more effectively as an interrelated portfolio.
- Apply ERM as a tool to identify, evaluate and monitor risk and design a practical roadmap for ERM implementation.
- Integrate ERM into strategy-setting and day-to-day operations for long-term growth and sustainability.
- Establish the right culture and mind-set that manage risks and maximise return.
- Learn industry best practices from prestigious NTU faculty and senior risk practitioners.
RIMS is a global professional body dedicated to advancing the practice of risk management across industries. The RIMS-CRMP credential defines the highest achievement in risk competencies as it is the only risk management certification in the world to be accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and complies with the ISO/IEC 17024:2012 standard for certification bodies. For more information on RIMS and RIMS-CRMP certification, please visit www.rims.org.
Nanyang ERM Programme complements other study resources needed to prepare for the RIMS-CRMP© examination. Participation in the programme helps but does not guarantee a pass in the RIMS-CRMP© certification examination.
Middle to senior level executives who are involved in risk management, governance, internal audit, strategy-setting and business continuity planning will benefit from this programme.
