AICTE: Supporting the development of enterprise-wide risk intelligent students and education institutions through IRM's 5-level qualifications and research projects
"Risk management and risk-taking is common in the industry, be it in terms of R&D investment or developing a new product or new market. Hence entrepreneurs and startups on one end and angel investors on the other end of the spectrum do indulge in risk-taking and are engaged in risk management. Governments do take risks in international affairs, introducing new laws, reforms, etc. However, in the education sector, except management schools, where risk management is a formal course, there is no other inkling of risk management. The COVID19 crisis has made everyone in the education sector realize this pretty well in terms of the continuance of classes, examinations, admissions, and new academic sessions.
AICTE & IRM being the world leader in ERM Professional Qualifications across 143 countries have partnered to prepare institutions for the uncertain world and make students risk-ready with an important skill of enterprise-wide risk management through IRM's scholarship program and professional examinations."

We are thrilled to collaborate with IRM on this initiative as we look forward to partnering with India Inc on the “Future of Risk”.

Eduvanz: Creating an ERM culture in the NBFC sector and supporting IRM students
“Over the years, we have also seen risk management evolving in the Fintech sector, from the crisis in 2019 when banks ceased lending to NBFCs, to the current practice of risk-sharing with Fintechs and NBFCs. Post-COVID, maintaining seamless business operations is a bigger challenge for organizations overgrowth or profitability.” “In the coming days, holistic risk practices will be the core of all business strategies for organizations, whether large or small. The agility and adaptability to the ever-changing environment will determine the success or failure of enterprises in the coming days, and By partnering with IRM, we hope to create a wider awareness of ERM practices in the industry and among students,”
