Risk Policy and Regulation - Graduate Diploma

NOTE: This program is currently not accepting new students.

The Graduate Diploma in Risk Policy and Regulation (RPRD) is a four-month program unique in Canada.

To be eligible to be considered for admission, students are required to have at least a B+ in a Master's degree in Economics (MA), a Master's in Financial Economics (MFE), or equivalent qualification.

The courses in this diploma will also be open to doctoral students in the Department of Economics and thus the diploma serves a secondary purpose: to introduce doctoral students to the study of financial risk and policy. It will comprise four compulsory courses:

  1. RPRD 801 Risk Management Theory and Applications
  2. RPRD 802 Financial Institutions Theory and Practice
  3. RPRD 803 Financial Regulation
  4. ​RPRD 804 Advanced Topics in Risk Management and Regulation

Course evaluation will be based on projects, case study analysis, assignments, presentations and examinations. This is a course-based diploma and, therefore, a dissertation or major research paper is not required.
