Chief Risk Officer (CRO) Programme

This course is Guaranteed to Run (GTR). Find out more about our GTR initiative on our website.

Fast-track your development to executive and board level with this in-depth programme designed specifically for current and aspiring Chief Risk Officers.

The Chief Risk Officer (CRO) Programme is designed to help you understand the best-practice essentials of undertaking modern and strategic, executive-level risk management. You will learn how risk management should be defined and structured - both conceptually and functionally - so a Chief Risk Officer can provide the best possible support to their colleagues, CEO and board.

In particular, the programme considers the importance of establishing an effective enterprise risk management (ERM) function that acts as a “strategic enabler” that focuses principally on addressing the challenges that impact overall corporate strategy and the achievement of business objectives.

You will explore everything from the technology, tools and methods that a CRO must make part of their toolkit to the human resource and psychological challenges that they are likely to face in defining and establishing his or her CRO role.
