COSO Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Certificate Blended Study Course

The complexity of enterprise risk has changed, new risks have emerged, and managing it has become everyone’s responsibility. The new COSO Enterprise Risk Management Certificate offers you the unique opportunity to learn the concepts and principles of the newly updated ERM framework and to be prepared to integrate the framework into your organization’s strategy-setting process to drive business performance.
