    For organizations to succeed, they must strike a balance between risk and reward to create and protect enterprise value. Effective risk management is an essential competency to support business performance in a changing environment. It can and does make a difference over the long term, yet few business leaders have benefited from training in this area.

    You now have a choice of three certificate programs to participate in – leading to a Masters Certification. Whether you attend a single certificate or the full program, the ability to build your risk management proficiency has never been easier.

    The goal of The Centre of Excellence in Risk Management & Governance is to help Canadian business and government excel in the global market, and better manage the risks that you will face along the way.

    We encourage experienced leaders to start with your Foundations Certificate this May.
