ABA, University of Maryland Partner to Launch Enterprise Risk Management Program PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 06 May 2016
WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association and the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business have collaborated to present Enterprise Risk Management, a new advanced professional development program designed for senior risk management professionals across the banking industry. Registration is now open for the five-day program, which will be held Oct. 31 – Nov. 4, in Washington, D.C.  

“As banks maneuver through a variety of threats and opportunities, the challenge of maintaining a strong risk management program and culture can be daunting,” said Jim Edrington, executive vice president of ABA's professional development group. “More is expected of risk managers today. This program will help them develop and sustain an effective risk governance framework that enables their institution to quickly and easily make sound risk-taking decisions.”

The ERM program helps senior risk compliance professionals further build the critical knowledge and management skills necessary to develop, implement and monitor effective risk programs, and to take action with confidence. The curriculum takes a holistic approach, exploring each of the industry’s primary risk categories including credit risk management, asset-liability management and business risk. It is designed to foster in-depth learning through expert instruction, team exercises, active learning modules and case studies. The program is limited in size and places attendees in small teams guided by a faculty of experts from government agencies and the private sector, including the Smith School’s executive-in-residence Clifford Rossi and other accomplished chief risk officers, who will share their knowledge and experience on each of the various risk categories.

“The ERM program takes the best of what Smith and ABA have to offer and creates something very special,” said Gary Cohen, associate dean of executive programs at the Smith School of Business. “Bankers attending this program will learn from academics who also have extensive field experience and know how to put theory into practice.”
