Speaking on the partnership, Sujatha Kumaraswamy, Vice President – Strategy & Business Excellence, Manipal Global Education Services, said, “After witnessing the disruption brought on by Covid-19, it is imperative for organizations to invest in risk management teams to identify possible risks and prepare for unprecedented scenarios. Our partnership with RIMS aims at addressing this by empowering organizations to anticipate, manage, and respond to strategic and operational risks in real-time. We are committed to providing professionals with the tools, resources, and education they need to be successful. The expert-led courses will equip risk managers with practical knowledge and enable them to address pressing issues and protect their organizations, both today and in the future.”

The risk management courses will not only assist learners in gaining the valuable RIMS-CRMP certification, but also aid them in comprehending how to build a framework for overseeing risk in an organization. Post completion of the program, they will be able to create a resilient business model and design a risk strategy for businesses seamlessly. The program will also provide a platform to the learners for opportunities to build a strong network by interacting with risk management professionals globally.

“In an ever-changing risk landscape – from cyber threats, to natural disasters and global health pandemics like the one we are experiencing today – risk management education, resources and content has never been more coveted,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “Manipal has a long tradition of providing superior educational opportunities to learners around the world. We are excited to embark on this journey with them and deliver world-leading risk management curriculum and career-advancing opportunities to their professional network.”
