This year, RIMS has launched the Spencer-RIMS Risk Management Challenge, to be held April 27-30, during the RIMS 2014 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Denver, Colorado.
About the Program
Twenty university teams from across the United States and Canada have been selected to participate in this three-month competition. The teams, comprised of students already engaged in their university's risk management and educational programming, were given a case study and will be challenged to develop the best and most comprehensive risk management program to address the issue.
Approximately one month prior the RIMS Conference a panel of judges will review the teams' submissions, and the top ten teams will be announced. Those ten teams will travel to Denver to present their findings to the panel. Three finalists will be chosen to compete for a cash prize. The Risk Challenge culminates with a presentation in front of a room of established risk management professionals, the actual risk manager who successfully managed the case study for his or her organization and other potential employers. The winning team will be announced during the Conference Finale.
Check back in the coming months to learn more about the ten teams selected to present their findings at the RIMS Conference, and the case study on which they will be presenting.
