Strategically Capitalize on Risk

The Master of Science in Risk Management program delivers both breadth and depth in understanding the key risk issues for business practitioners.

Risk has always been pervasive in all lines of business. Regardless of the activity or industry, effective and efficient risk management—just like revenue-generation and cost-efficiency—underpins the value of an enterprise. The objective of risk management is not to minimize enterprise risk, but rather to manage it as efficiently as possible and extract the best possible returns to shareholders from firm-specific risk exposure. Inevitably, risk management is inseparable from strategic positioning, execution, and competitive performance.

The MS in Risk Management program cuts across the classic “foundation” risk domains as well as frontiers of risk management that are still being defined and calibrated. Graduates of this program will enhance their academic capabilities and credentials in an area of expertise that is fundamental to the sustainable performance of their organizations.
