Join CEU Business School in Shanghai where you’ll be able to talk one-on-one with our recruiting representative about our innovative MBA programs. We are also inviting you to attend this special workshop:
Corporate Risk Management in the Post-crisis World by CEU Business School Professor Peter G. Szilagyi (see detail below)
The full-time MBA degree is a general management course that provides students with a detailed overview of how businesses work, across the board.
MBA alumni will have a detailed grasp of a number of core specializations, from almost all of the best business schools. These will almost always include finance, marketing, strategy, human resources and operations management.
A master’s in accounting may spend 90% of the time on accounting in depth, and 10% glancing at other aspects of business. On an MBA course the idea is to spend a lot of time on each important aspect of business.
Many of the best business schools will offer specialization modules of some kind.
Increasingly popular are modules in corporate social responsibility (CSR), leadership, communication and entrepreneurship, as the business world realizes that to succeed in business it requires employees that are well-rounded leaders, and not just experts at financial models.

Corporate Risk Management in the Post-crisis World
Speaker: Peter G. Szilagyi
Companies around the world are exposed to a variety of financial risks, including interest rate, inflation, currency, credit, commodity and M&A-related risks. The Global Financial Crisis and improved risk management capabilities have brought about fundamental changes in how these risks are viewed, identified and managed by top corporations. However, modern risk management practices remain seldom discussed and little understood in the broader business community, especially in emerging markets. This presents a major competitive disadvantage in the post-crisis world, where companies with controlled exposures to volatile financial markets enjoy lower earnings volatility, a lower risk of financial distress, and a generally more stable operating environment.
This mini workshop will introduce attendees to modern risk management from the perspective of non-financial corporations. You will learn (i) what risks companies should manage and why, (ii) how risk management policies should be developed and organized, and (iii) how the various types of risk can be measured and managed. In the process, you will gain critical new insight into the operational problems that today’s corporations face, and how financial market conditions interact with corporate performance and decision making.
Understanding the problems covered in the workshop will be helpful to virtually everyone seeking a career in business finance, including as company officers (CEOs, CFOs, CROs, treasurers and beyond); accountants, consultants; corporate bankers, coverage officers, corporate financiers, private equity investors.
