Courses in Risk Management Theory and Applications, Financial Instiutions Theory and Practice, Financial Regulation, and Advanced Topics in Risk Management and Regulation, along with the incorporation of relevant material from financial management and accounting and behavioural economics, will enable graduates of the program to think creatively about how alternative risk management models can be developed and applied, and will allow them to contribute to the design of more effective regulations and policies influencing the financial sector.
