“CRERIM is the only Italian Specializing Master programme on Credit Risk Management. Managing credit model development at Unicredit, I think that after Basilea 2 credit models have become fundamental and today play a key role in financial companies and banks like Unicredit. What we need is the possibility to hire highly specialized resources. That is why this Master’s programme, through its specific design and perspective, allows professionals to meet potentially skilled figures who may become the new generation of organizations like ours”.

“Thanks to CRERIM, moreover, I had the opportunity to learn a powerful instrument for data analysis like SAS: the Master gave me the possibility to attend intensive courses for learning the basics of the software and, at the end, gave me also the chance to get a certification.
This is another great result coming from CRERIM as, throughout the internship experience, I’m realizing that having SAS programming skills is really appreciated on the job. In addition, CRERIM provided me the right means to get a first job experience within the banking industry since, at the end of the courses, I started an internship within the Retail Credit Risk team of ING Bank and, what is more, in October I will start a traineeship at the European Central Bank within the Single Supervisory Mechanism.”
