Texas A&M Launches Online Risk Management Curriculum with Fearless On Every Front Campaign

Posted by William Byrnes on September 22, 2016

Texas A&M University School of Law announces the launch of its revolutionary online graduate curricula in Risk Management — both developed as an important part of the public university’s mission.  Delivered completely online, the Risk Management curricula meets the increasing need of professionals to be versed in the legal aspects of financial transactions, risk, anti money laundering, FCPA, terrorist financing prevention, OFAC, and compliance management. Lawyers and non-lawyers alike will take a deep dive into the intricacies of managing risk, critical in the rapidly evolving global financial climate.

Texas A&M law professor William Byrnes, who conceptualized both curricula and pioneered online legal education 20 years ago, quoted a New York post article, “In a field paying anywhere from $75,000 to $250,000 in annual salary for qualified compliance pros, staffing is one of the biggest challenges for firms today.”  New York Post (Aug. 13, 2016)

“The demand of universities from firms”, says William Byrnes, is, “How are you going to give us that staff member of the future?  Although several universities are considering how to adapt their programs to the future needs of students and employers, it is easier to talk about change than actually bring it about.”

Ernst & Young’s Tax Insights magazine, distributed to its clients and through the Financial Times,  stated “Texas A&M University is among the pioneers of change in tax education. In 2013, the State of Texas not only established a new law school at the university but also gave it carte blanche to create a new education model.”

“A risk management approach means that the new model will by definition be multidisciplinary.” explains William Byrnes.   According to National Law Journal (May 20, 2013), “No one in legal academia has more experience with online master’s degrees than William Byrnes.”
