Global Association Of Risk Professionals Announces New Academic Partnerships With Six Universities

Internationally recognized institutions in the US, Portugal, Ireland, and France join GARP's Partnership for Risk Education.

NEW YORK and LONDON, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Global Association of Risk Professionals, (GARP, www.garp.org) has announced the addition of six universities to the GARP Partnership for Risk Education. The Partnership for Risk Education is a framework through which academic institutions can ensure that their risk management course offerings are aligned with global industry needs and best practices. Affiliated schools incorporate the curriculum of one of GARP's globally recognized professional certifications, the Financial Risk Manager (FRM®) or the Energy Risk Professional (ERP®), into their courses of study.

The institutions new to the Partnership for Risk Education are: Dublin City University ( Ireland), University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL, Portugal), North Carolina State University (US), Pace University's Lubin School of Business (US), Reims Management School ( France), and the University of Colorado, Denver (US). "Joining the Partnership for Risk Education demonstrates these institutions' commitment to successfully preparing students to understand and apply the skills and techniques required by the global risk management profession," said GARP's Managing Director for Educational Programs, Chris Donohue. "We are delighted to welcome these new academic partners, whose Masters programs are aligned with the body of knowledge required for the FRM Exam."

These six schools have proven track records at the Masters level in finance, and partnering with GARP on this initiative is further assurance to students of the outstanding quality of their programs.  "Risk management is a fast-evolving discipline, and GARP's academic partnerships play a critical role in educating the next generation of qualified risk managers," said FRM Program Manager Bill May. "The FRM curriculum is practitioner-driven and responsive to current marketplace needs. It is also extremely rigorous, covering issues in financial markets and products, quantitative analysis, risk models and valuation, and market, credit, operational and integrated risk management that impact organizations on a daily basis." There are currently over 26,000 Certified FRMs practicing worldwide; becoming certified entails clearing a two-part, eight hour exam and demonstrating two years of risk-related professional experience.

Details about GARP's academic partnership program and the FRM designation are available at www.garp.org/frm.
