As modern financial institutions face various risks from a wide range of financial and non-financial sources, measuring and managing these risks have become a vital part of their daily and strategic decision-making process. Due to the interconnectedness of the international financial system, we now witness that the consequences of financial risks can not only affect individual institutions, but all of society. Quantitative Risk Management (QRM) is a multidisciplinary program designed to give students opportunities to study advanced quantitative methods and models used in the modern financial world. After completion of the program, successful students will be able to start careers in various positions in financial risk management. QRM has a vision to nurture interdisciplinary global talents for financial risk management by creating synergistic effects which transcend traditional academic disciplines such as economics, statistics, actuarial science, and other relevant fields.
