Embracing risk is a fundamental part of business existence and success - 'nothing ventured, nothing gained' being particularly apt. Business growth and development goes hand in hand with risk management.
Programs typically combine a core 'standard' MBA curriculum with risk-based elective modules -
modules often delivered by professionals already active and successful within the risk-management field.
Students emerge with strong analytical and critical thinking skills.
Typical modules might include:
Principles of risk and insurance
Corporate risk management
Workforce risk management
Global risk management
Corporate governance and ethics
Enterprise risk management
Careers likely to benefit form this specialism include risk surveyors, production managers, regulatory risk managers, risk and governance managers, exit strategy managers and business consultants. The insurance industry also provides fertile career potential.
