One of the nicest things about attending the annual Risk & Insurance Management Society (RIMS) Conference & Exhibit is meeting new people. This year, I was able to connect with Andrew Boyarsky, the Academic Director of Risk, Operations, and Emergency Management for the Katz School of Graduate and Professional Studies at Yeshiva University, New York. Over lunch, Andrew told me about a new program launching this fall at the university: the MS in Enterprise Risk Management.
The online, 30-credit program, he says, is designed to give students a deeper understanding of the latest in risk management methodologies, and to help manage risks across the enterprise. Faculty are from top companies and will train students using real-world case studies and project-based methods. The curriculum, Boyarsky says, aligns with the criteria of a number of professional organizations, including RIMS and Disaster Recovery Institute International. Not only will students earn an MS in ERM, but will come out of the program prepped for the RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional (RIMS-CRMP) credential.
Want to know more? The university is hosting a webinar on May 24th at 12 pm ET. The webinar, titled How to Manage Crises and Create a Resilient Organization will also include information on the MS program. Click here for more information and to register.
