The Risk Management in Banking and Financial Markets Professional Certificate from EdX is offered in partnership with Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore - IIMBx.

The financial ecosystem comprising banks, financial markets, central banks and regulators has deepened in size, sophistication and complexity across countries over the last few decades. However, they have also been the subject of abuse and manipulation thanks to the rapid proliferation of complex financial products and a plethora of risk transfer instruments such as CDOs, CDS, etc. That, in turn, resulted in a ‘risk contagion’, which spiraled out of control and eventually resulted in the global financial crisis of 2008, a calamitous event that has forever significantly altered the banking and financial markets landscape worldwide.
