Managing Curriculum Convergence in Risk Management and Financial Services
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThis article describes how the University of Calgary has increased the flexibility offered to students in a curriculum that directly reflects the convergence occurring in the financial services marketplace. This design uses elements from existing programs in finance, risk management and insurance, as well as a few specific courses from accounting, economics, and other departments. The result is a double concentration that provides students a better understanding of financial services and of the career paths offered in the financial services industry. Students are able to select a career path early, which in turn benefits them and their future employers.
