The 3 general management papers will focus on enhancing awareness of corporate reality and creating more well-rounded risk professionals of the future. These will include Strategic Thinking, Fundamentals of Human Resource Management, and Organizational Behavior....Show more.
One of the key risks of developing and delivering a specialized Risk Domain curriculum is that students should not ever think of Risk expertise in a Silo environment. Good strong professionals need to recognize:
  • How a risk decision impacts an organization's short-term and long-term strategy, and hence all decisions need to be weighed in that context.
  • That all decisions need to be accepted and internalized by an organization effective implementation, and for that, an understanding of organizational behavior is critical.
  • That all organizations now realize that irrespective of which industry segment they might operate in (including in the most digital interrupted business models), the need for appreciation of Human Resource elements of an organization can hardly be over-emphasized if it wants to be successful.
The above were the key drivers for these general management papers being included as core and mandatory papers of the PGDRM curriculum (Post Graduate Diploma in Risk Management).
Developmental work for all the Risk Management papers have been led by professionals with a collective experience of 100+ years in the Risk consulting space. These papers have been co-developed and vetted by Global Risk Advisory leaders and industry experts, while working closely with tenured faculty of internationally reputed Universities.

We are glad to announce that the Post Graduate Diploma in Risk Management course (PGDRM) programme is now also integrated with the OTHM International Diploma in Risk Management (Level 7) Diploma in Risk Management (Qualification Number: 603/6782/9 The OTHM International Diploma in Risk Management (Level 7) diplomas on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) are at the same level as master’s degrees. While all GRMI Students and Alumni receive OTHM awarded certificates on completion on the PGDRM (Post Graduate Diploma in Risk Management) Programme, the new integrated programme will allow students to complete and be awarded an OTHM-OFQUAL regulated International Diploma in Risk Management (Level 7) Diploma in Risk Management. OFQUAL qualifications are fully recognised by all UK universities as Ofqual is a Statutory body in UK and therefore they have maximum currency. Cleared PGDRM Students are awarded 5/6 paper exemptions to complete the above certification. 1 non-exempt paper can be given during or after the PGDRM Programme.

How will I be Assessed

Semester Exams:

The program year is divided into two semesters of 5 months each. At the end of each semester students will be examined on the modules you have taken.

Both the semesters would last for approximately 20 weeks each, with about 18 weeks of teaching and two weeks of assessment.

Assessment Methods:

All modules have exam-based assessment, case study analysis and workshop participation-based assessment. The weightage of each component may vary for each paper.

Global Risk Management Institute (GRMI) will follow the traditional CGPA score concept and hence students would get a comparative sense of where they stand within their peer group.

We aim to apply very high standards in admitting students to the institute since we hope to be in a position by the end of the first year where our students are greatly in demand on the one hand, and spoilt for choice in potential employers on the other. This will imply that CGPA scores would become tough to secure, and also relevant for future employers as they would secure top talent graduating from GRMI. We are certain that all organizations hiring out of GRMI would be top corporates and risk consulting firms, who would settle for no less than the best talent on campus.

We would be delighted to see this trigger off a compensation tussle amongst some of the large hiring organizations.

It is wise to explore a variety of resources to help finance your education. Although students and their families are aware of the many advantages of investing in higher education, many applicants are worried about the increased cost of undertaking a postgraduate program. However, completing a higher education program can contribute to brighter employment prospects, apart from helping you gain the confidence and skills needed to perform diverse and demanding roles in the professional world. All students admitted to GRMI will have access to a number of student loan options made available in collaboration with banks and financial institutions that offer low interest rates and do not require the students or their families to provide collateral.
