Diploma in Risk Management, Internal Audit and Compliance

Programme Overview

The Diploma in Risk Management, Internal Audit and Compliance was developed for those who work or aspire to work in a professional capacity in risk, internal audit and/or compliance roles. Since the recent financial crisis there has been an emphasis on the areas of risk management, regulation and compliance

Risk overarches everything in a business and once the core ideas are understood at all levels of responsibility, good risk management can be applied to any type of risk in any sector, from health to pharma to financial services. Risk management theory does not change, it’s about knowing the risk you are taking and making good decisions. It has implications for strategic and business planning, audit and assurance arrangements and the management and control of activities.
