The Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Advanced Professional Development Program is considered the premier training program for professionals in the growing and ever-evolving field of enterprise risk management.
A partnership between the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business and the American Bankers Association, this program identifies and addresses emerging concerns within each of the key risk categories: credit risk management, asset-liability management and business risk management.
Program Director Cliff Rossi has used his in-depth experience in banking and academia to develop the high-powered ERM Advanced Professional Development Program. He's assembled an unmatched group of faculty members to provide the insight needed to identify, monitor, measure and control for risk across an enterprise.
Currently, Rossi is professor of the practice and executive in residence at the Smith School, and is chief economist and senior vice president of Radian Group Inc. He has worked on key policy issues at the U.S. Treasury’s Office and has also held senior executive roles in risk management at several of the largest financial services companies.
He is frequently quoted on financial policy issues in major newspapers. His book, A Risk Professional’s Survival Guide: Applied Best Practices in Risk Management was released in 2014. He also has authored numerous articles on banking industry topics.
Rossi serves as an adviser to a number of banks, federal regulatory agencies and private equity investment companies on banking and regulatory topics.
