This skills training aims to give students insight into the process of country risk rating. Risk rating is becoming more important, in particular because of Basel II and Basel III. Students work in teams and construct risk ratings for one pair of countries. Two lectures from country risk analysts that work in the banking/insurance sector, will help students to think about how to measure country risk. Students will discover tips and tricks in the construction of these ratings.
