Become the Risk Managers of the future: the second edition of the UNIBO-CRIF Master's is coming

The second edition of the full-time Master's in Quantitative Risk Management developed through collaboration between the Department of Statistical Sciences at the University of Bologna and CRIF starts from January 2018.
The aim of the Master's is to train experts in the risk management of financial intermediaries, able to perform tasks related both to financial market trend analysis and the definition of market, credit and liquidity risk management strategies. In particular, the Master's provides the skills to deal with emerging aspects in risk measurement and management in the context of recent regulatory developments.

Specifically, the first part of the Master's will deal with the main concepts of probability, statistics, econometrics, financial engineering, and institutions in the financial intermediation markets. The second part will introduce the emerging aspects of market, credit and liquidity risk, looking specifically in detail at analysis of so-called big data.
Finally, to help participants enter the world of work, there will be a practical internship lasting 300 hours at CRIF SpA or one of its partner companies.

Watch the participants from the first edition of the UNIBO-CRIF Master's describe their experiences
