Risk is a fact of doing business. Be a CRO who can see the big picture.

Chief Risk Officer (CRO) Certificate


For leaders in risk management to gain the latest skills and best practices impacting their domain.

This five-month program, co-administered by the CERT Division of CMU’s Software Engineering Institute (SEI), blends on-campus and synchronous distance learning. It is designed to deliver what CROs need to flourish in their current positions and further develop in their risk management careers, including strategies for effectively communicating risks to executive leadership professionals, and tools for analyzing and addressing enterprise risks.

The CRO Certificate Program imparts applicable training, including topical discussion on current risk challenges and mitigation practices. Learning objectives are met through a combination of expert faculty instruction, business case analyses, and active exchanges with thought leaders in the field. As part of this certificate program, you will develop or enhance a risk plan for an organization. This plan is designed for you to apply several of the methods, tools, and techniques taught during the modules of the program.
