Proseminar: Case Studies in Risk Management

Prof. Randy Dumm; Stefan Neuß


As the name implies, this course uses a case study approach to educate students about the risk management process and about the emerging and rapidly evolving concept of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). Corporations today face a wider array of risks than ever before, and investors, regulators and other parties are demanding that management understand and manage these risks in the most effective and efficient manner possible. This is the goal of Enterprise Risk Management.
