UMD Smith School launches risk management program

The Center for Financial Policy (CFP) at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business and Deloitte have jointly developed a new risk management training program they will deliver to government financial professionals beginning Jan. 11, 2022.

The certificate program, called the Maryland Smith Federal Risk Academy, will provide thought leadership, training, and special events to federal employees engaged in credit, banking, loans, grants, insurance and other market activities.

The CFP, in collaboration with Deloitte, is administering the Federal Risk Academy along with Maryland Smith’s Office of Executive Education. A primary component of this collaboration will be virtual, live executive learning sessions on applied risk management topics of interest to federal risk managers and financial regulators.

As a preview for the training, Maryland Smith, in collaboration with Deloitte, offers a series of live panel discussions on the topic of Federal Risk Management. The next one, titled, “A Scientist’s Take on Climate Models and Risk Management Applications,” will be held Nov. 17 from 10 to 11 a.m.
