Last week marked the launch of the RepRisk Multinational Corporation Supply Chain Reputational Risk Challenge. This research competition is being run in conjunction with the London School of Economics Masters in Management class of 2011/2012 and Mod'Art International's MBA in Management and Economy (Fashion & Luxury) class of 2011/2012.
Each research project team will work with one of the world's largest companies and RepRisk AG. These companies have been selected from across a diverse and high risk industry landscape to build best practice ESG risk monitoring programs for financial risk management, enterprise risk management and compliance across their supply chain.
RepRisk AG is the leading provider of dynamic business intelligence on environmental and social risks for an unlimited universe of companies and projects to the world's financial markets. Its mission is to help clients achieve long-term success through transparency, compliance and risk management. RepRisk believes that corporate responsibility goes hand-in-hand with sound financial and reputational risk management, operational excellence and profitable growth in the medium- and long-term.
As Academic Supervisor and in partnership with RepRisk's project leader and Senior Analyst Nicole Neghaiwi, together we are very much looking forward to supporting the growth and development of these young professionals as we set the standards for best practice in ESG supply chain risk management in industry and deliver value to the world's business leaders for financial risk management, enterprise risk management and compliance.
The RepRisk Award of Excellence will be presented to recognise the winning team in January 2012.
May the best team win!
