Developing & Implementing Intelligent Credit Risk Scorecards

 Sigla_IBR_2017 S285-sas100K NOU 

Hands-on 2-day seminar with SAS software

Aims and Scope of the Seminar

This seminar presents a business-focused process for the development and implementation of risk prediction scorecards, one that builds upon a solid foundation of statistics and data mining principles.

Moreover, this course aims to define the concepts underpinning credit risk modelling and to show how these concepts can be formulated with practical examples using SAS software. Through the specific course students learn how to develop credit risk models in the context of the Basel Guidelines. These are illustrated by structured course notes and exercises and by several real-life cases. It will be highly interactively organised.

Target group

The target audience consists of analysts and technical managers who are involved into building scoring systems and/or are responsible for monitoring their behaviour and performance, or wishing to build credit risk or marketing oriented scorecards.


Understanding of statistical classification methods and credit risk principles will be welcome.
