Basic data

Name: Computer Techniques Course for Risk Management
Dates: From the 15 to the 18 of October of 2018.




16 classroom hours


The University of Azuay presents the First Seminar on Computer Techniques for Risk Management, which will contribute to strengthening the capabilities of the Masters of the Master in Integral Auditing and Financial Risk Management through a formative, avant-garde and innovative platform that It supports a reflective methodological process, of practical application, that allows creating a meaningful learning environment for the participants.



  • Strengthen the capacities of the attendees based on a methodological approach to practical resolution learning in the field of technological tools for risk analysis.


  • Know the statistical models used in the modeling of risk scenarios.
  • Know the technological tools used in risk modeling.


The curricular proposal of the course is structured in four modules that seek, from the proposed methodology, to develop a reflective and practical process that allows answering three key questions about Computer Techniques for Risk Management:

Are you now handling a risk model? What computer application is used to perform the task? What kind of risk are you handling?

El first module seeks to introduce the student to the virtual learning environment, with the aim of having a mastery of the platform and its various teaching tools that allow efficient development of the beginning of the academic year.

El second module The course will lay the conceptual foundations on the tool, through a systemic approach that allows holistic understanding of the tool, thus contributing to the student's vision to formulate strategies for managing this tool.

In the third module The concept of case analysis with participatory methodologies is addressed to understand and exercise the articulated and participatory nature of this tool.

In the fourth module the different functions of the program are analyzed, it will seek to provide the student with different approaches, methodologies and identification tools under a tutored follow-up by various experts in the subject and thus close the end of the course with a day of support for each one of the proposed topics.

Assessment criteria

Evaluation is conceived as a continuous and permanent process that will allow fair and equitable value judgments to be made; For this purpose, the analysis of the activities will be considered through participation in the practices by the participants. The percentage distribution will be as follows:



Fulfillment of activities (participation in the practices)


The approval of the academic program implies a minimum of 70% of academic performance and attendance of 80% of face-to-face classes.
