The Evolving Role of the Chief Risk Officer

Carnegie Mellon University’s new Chief Risk Officer (CRO) Certificate Program provides domain leaders with the latest skills and practices in risk management. The focus is on what CROs need to know to thrive in their jobs, including how to interact with executive leadership and how to analyze and dispose of enterprise risks. This six-month program consists of nine modules: four at our Pittsburgh campus (requiring three on-site trips) and five via synchronous distance technology. The CMU CRO Certificate Program is being developed and delivered by Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Public Policy and Information Systems, its Risk and Regulatory Services Innovation Center, and the CERT Division of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI).
