IRM Releases Global Student Rankings for the International Certificates in Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), and Financial Services Risk Management

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 15, 2024 / -- Students who have passed both papers of their assessments are now entitled to use the globally recognised IRMCert designation (Certificate Member) - employers actively seek these out when recruiting for risk management positions.

Stephen Sidebottom, Chair of the IRM said:

“Congratulations to all the IRM students who recently passed their assessments, with special recognition to those who attained distinctions or merits. Your dedication, perseverance, and commitment are truly commendable and have led to remarkable achievements.

The evolving complexity and unpredictability within the global business landscape emphasises the significance of identifying and proactively managing risks – both the threats and opportunities.

Consequently, the demand for IRM qualified Risk Managers is continuing to grow across all industries worldwide. Embarking on a career in risk promises both challenges and rewards, along with abundant opportunities for professional growth and advancement. ERM remains relevant to the success of global business and benefits society across the globe.

As our students venture into their future careers, we extend our heartfelt wishes for continued success.”

Overall global student (by average pass mark for both Module 1: Principles of Risk and Risk Management and Module 2: Practices of Risk Management):

Sophie McDermott, IRMCert, Insurance and Claims Adviser, National Grid, UK.

She said:

“I found the IRM’s International Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management very engaging and particularly enjoyed the mixture of learning resources provided including textbooks, online articles, case studies and YouTube videos which made it easier to absorb and understand the content.

The assignments encouraged me to apply the learning to real life scenarios and widened my understanding of risk management outside of insurable risk, which is where my experience has been predominantly focused. I would recommend the qualification to all Risk Managers looking for a great grounding in risk management principles and practises to support their organisations through the evolving risk landscape.”
