One crucial aspect of a successful organisation is its ability to manage exposures to risk. In the financial markets, the ability to manage risky positions effectively is both a fundamental skill and a regulatory requirement.
This programme will provide you with the mathematical and econometric skills and financial training necessary to address the issues related to quantifying, pricing and managing exposures to risk in the financial markets.
