Open Programs - Risk Management & Regulation

The prevailing shortage of skilled specialists in the financial sector is noticeable not only since the Brexit decision affected the institutional landscape in Germany’s financial center. Job vacancies are difficult or impossible to fill – especially in the field of risk management. Industry experts are already talking about a real ‘war for talent’.

For employers in the financial sector, it is important to master the challenge of better qualifying senior employees in the area of risk management and to prepare them to take over management positions in the short term. In addition, targeted academic education of young professionals will ensure a larger supply of qualified specialists in the medium term.

The different programs in risk management & regulation enable participants to master the challenges of the financial industry and provide a broad understanding of future developments in finance.
