With almost catastrophic collapse of the world's financial markets, everyone is asking the questions "How could the financial institutions pile on so much risk?” “Why no one was watching?” “Where were the risk managers?” “Where was ERM?” and “What happened to risk governance?” These are all legitimate questions. Skeptics are challenging the value add of risk management and internal controls (RMIC). The motives and practices of many players in this game have been questioned. There is no better time than today for management accountants to reexamine their role and place in the world of risk management and internal control (RMIC). For the management accountants willing to assert their place in the RMIC world opportunities abound, while the leery and unwilling risk losing their rightful place at the table.
Upcoming course offerings will be available soon at a very reasonable price. For details or to purchase a course, be sure to visit www.imanet.org/rmic
