Value drivers

Rating systems and credit risk management have entered a new stage. By having participants in direct contact with top faculty and other professionals who bring diverse experiences to the classroom, the three-day program allows participants to focus on the critical areas of model building, managing techniques, policies and organizational solutions, within the requirements and implications of a new regulatory framework.

Learning Model

The primary teaching method used in the seminar is class discussion within an established conceptual framework. Executive and professional participants are well aware of critical issues in credit risk management within their organization, and therefore can bring the complexity of real situations to class. This is much more effective than traditional case-study learning or one-way lecturing.

Reference Material

Finalized readings will be available to participants in order to pre-define conceptual frameworks, give structured knowledge and summarize class discussions.
