Read what the Kellogg-PRMIA Complete Course Class of 2010 had to say about the instructors:
Russell Walker – Market Risk, Credit Risk, Operational Risk, Enterprise Risk
“Very good conversations came out of the materials, as did good examples from Professor Walker.”
"Excellent presentation; Great class participation.”
“Russell continues to shine in the presentation of difficult subject matter. He keeps information sufficiently broad to allow applicability across a diverse group of professionals.”
Karl Schmedders – Foundations of Risk Measurement
“Tough maths explained simply great!”
“Re-awakened my stale-dated statistics education.”
“Professor Schmedders made statistics fun and relevant which speaks volumes regarding his excellence as a professor. I walked away with several take-aways, better understand the ‘why’ behind the theories business goals.”
“Great enthusiasm for his topic that makes it appealing and clear to someone like me who likely is among the least quantitative persons of the class.”
Harry Kraemer – Governance and Board of Directors Roles
“Simply outstanding. Hearing real life perspective from a peer is priceless. Engaging the class in critical thought kept energy high and students on the edge of their seats.”
“Great thoughts and application of key concepts!”.
“Harry is the nearest I’ve ever seen as a cross between Peter Drucker and Robin Williams. Great insights and wonderfully entertaining, but without the raw language. Lobby Congress to allow cloning of Harry”.
Timothy Feddersen – Crisis Management and Non-Market Risk
“Eye-opening conversation, learned a lot.”
Mitchell Peterson – Capital Allocation
“Professor Peterson was fantastic! Learned a great deal from him and liked his teaching style.”
“Very good teaching. Taught capital allocation in a very different and innovative way.”
“Great conversation, I learned more than I thought I could on the subject.”
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Will I receive a certificate?
All participating delegates will receive a dated certificate of completion with the Kellogg and PRMIA logos.
What mathematical background is needed for this course?
This course takes a quantitative approach to risk management so a certain level of mathematical knowledge will be very beneficial. The mathematics background recommended for this course is similar to that needed going to an MBA program. It includes basic understanding of equations, what a variable is, the use of logarithms and exponentials, and some crude familiarity with mathematical manipulations at the GMAT level. Exposure to statistics, probability, and regression is a plus but not a requirement, as the course does offer a brief glimpse of some of these ideas in the first day.
Will I receive the PRM designation upon the completion of this course?
Attending this intensive training course does not result in the PRM designation/certification. However, all delegates will receive a certificate of attendance with the PRMIA and Kellogg logos.
Does the Complete Course prepare me for the PRM Exams?
The Complete Course in Risk Management is separate from the PRM program and does not result in delegates receiving their designation. This course can, however, be a beneficial tool for those preparing for the exams and delegates enrolled in the Complete Course in Risk Management will receive a hard copy of the Handbook. Please note that not all of the material in the Handbook will be covered. This course gives an excellent general overview of Risk Management and provides the theoretical grounding to enhance your career and improve your job performance.
