Trust the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) to stay abreast of the changing financial world. The premier business schools are rolling out courses and management development programmes for corporates in sync with the global uncertainties, financial risks and other key world trends. This year, the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad has tied up with three other top-league business schools in Brazil, Russia and China to introduce a program called BRICS on BRICS program. The program aims to capture the growth of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) in order to learn and compare these emerging economies.
Fundao Dom Cabral (FDC) from Brazil, the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO from Russia, IIM-A from India and the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) from China are the four leading business schools that have come together to provide global companies with knowledge, skills, and insights to successfully invest and operate in the BRIC countries. IIM-A also has a management development program called Strategic Financial Management & Control Programme, designed to address operational challenges in the area of corporate finance. IIM Bangalore (IIM-B) will offer a certificate program in Advanced Financial Risk Management starting October 2012.The course is an extensive program directed at financial operators engaged in risk management, such as traders, dealers, asset and fund managers, portfolio managers and financial analysts among others. The global economy has recently gone through a financial crisis emanating from the sub-prime loans in the US and before we are out of that, the world is facing another crisis in Europe, this time from high level of indebtedness in some countries as well as weak banks. This crisis has only brought to the fore the importance of risk management, said M. S. Narasimhan, professor of finance & control at IIM-B. The course will expose students to how companies failed in their derivative transactions and mismanaged the risk to understand the intricacies in designing risk management strategies. The program starts with a macro picture of financial markets and valuation of financial products for those who are not from financial background and subsequently build risk management courses, Narasimhan said.
