CQRM: Certified in Quantitative Risk Management

Course Overview

Quantitative Risk Management represents the discipline which deals with the ability of an organization to quantify and manage its risk. This scientific approach to business is becoming increasingly critical in today’s world as organizations need to satisfy stakeholders who demand it. 

The IIPER-CQRM accreditation is one of the fastest-growing international qualifications recognised by a growing number of multiple international institutions. These currently include the Project Management Institute (PMI), CFA Institute, AACSB International, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Energy Institute, Institution of Chemical Engineers and the Institute of Risk Management, all of whom are providing from 30 to 45 CPD,PDU and CPE credits. 

The IIPER CQRM is a 4-day classroom-based course, including a final day, two-hour open book exam. The IIPER CQRM accreditation course will cover the detailed concepts of Integrated Risk Management techniques.

These will include:

  • Quantitative Monte Carlo Risk Simulation 
  • Forecasting analysis and predictive modelling 
  • Project portfolio selection and optimisation 
  • Business Intelligence and Data Science analytics 
  • Strategic real options valuation. 

Throughout the course we will be looking at several case studies and industry applications from various multinationals so that delegates can see and understand how advanced analytics are being used globally. 

This is a rigorous and detailed course with a lot of hands-on modelling and exercises. Delegates will leave the course with the full capability and knowledge of how to run all these advanced analytics, to interpret and analyse business data and to make more informed business decisions.
