The Academic Risk Management Association was created and developed by a group of graduates and professionals who attended the Course in Risk Management at Verona University in 2001.
They feel the strong demand ofsensitizing the Italian business culture on these issues. A.RI.M.AS. is a non commercial oranization aiming to be a point of reference in the search for all the circles of competence of the Risk Manager. A.RI.M.AS. doesn't represent any categorical Association, but wants to be a cultural Association. It harbouns continuous growth to everyone willing to contact it through the exchange and discussion of issues concerning Risk Management.
The pursuit of these purposes will progress through two fundamental channels: Conference-Seminar-Workshops and A.RI.M.AS. site's activities.
The organization of Conferences, Seminars and Workshops
The Association intends to organize meetings with various realities sensitized to Risk Management. The aim is to follow the varied aspects of the economic-business reality in the activities of Risk Management.
The Association has been divided into four departments: Corporate, Finance, Insurance and Alternative Approach.
A.RI.M.AS. has acquired the collaboration of the Department of Financial, Industrial and Technological Studies of the Faculty of Economy of Verona University in the figure of Prof. Antonio Borghesi director of the only course in Italy to be accredited by FERMA (Federation of European Risk Management Associations).
