RMI Hosted Overseas Study Trip for Korea University Business School
MBA Students

On 14 February 2011, RMI welcomed another group of Korea University Business School (KUBS) Finance MBA students for a one-week overseas study trip on credit risk management. The group of 36 students is the largest group by far that has visited RMI since the partnership started in 2008. During the 6 days, the students attended lectures conducted by NUS professors as well as by Mr. Tham Ming Soong, Chief Risk Officer from UOB Bank and RMI's Adjunct Professor. The classroom lectures were complemented with a few computer-lab sessions and a half-day company visit to the SAS, a risk management software provider.

The group studied topics including credit ratings models, credit derivatives, credit portfolio management and integration of credit risk process into the Enterprise Risk Management framework. Mostly having worked in banks and financial institutions before embarking on their MBA study, the students appreciated both the theoretical and practical value of the course. A paper exam was held at the end of the course. Overall, the students had a good impression of the presentation, organization, lecturers and content of the program. Besides the course, RMI arranged for the students to take a river cruise along the Singapore River which featured the impressive Singapore skyline. Whilst on the cruise the students were treated to the sight of the now famous Marina Bay Sands as the river boat meandered down towards the Merlion Park.
