      This should fall into a Risk Management type of course. Besides Masters (and otherwise) courses offered in different universities, there are a few “professional accreditations” among which are the FRM (Financial Risk Manager) designation offered by GARP, as well as the CERA (Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst) one offered by the SOA.

      If memory serves me right @dannimac there’s a brief section on what it is and the formula, but it depends what you mean by teach. It certainly is not super in depth, but i think that is sufficient for the interview!

      @dannimac, what sort of position requires that anyway, if I’m not being too indiscrete.
      I’m pursuing the FRM2 in parallel with CFA3 and would be very glad to know how the two can complement each other, I mean, practically.
