Put Your Knowledge into Action
The MS in Risk Management is based on a blended learning approach combining in-person classroom time and independent study. The program culminates with the team-based Capstone.
Blended LearningModules are divided into three phases: pre-module, module, and post-module.
Pre-module: In-Person Class Sessions
This begins 4-6 weeks prior to the in-class teaching session. Students prepare for the module by completing qualitative and quantitative assignments that include readings and cases, tutorials and diagnostics, and exercises and written assessments. Completion of the pre-module material ensures a more rigorous and productive classroom experience. All learning materials will be posted to our online Learning Management System.
Module: In-Person Class Sessions
This will be an intensive, full-time period of rigorous in-class learning to absorb the advanced material and actively collaborate with your peers and faculty. Each module contains special events, guest speakers, and other opportunities to engage with your MSRM cohort and alumni community. Students are required to attend class during normal business hours each day with some additional evening engagements.
The post-module is designed as the implementation phase of the module. Students are challenged to apply the material and concepts covered during the pre-module phase and residential period to solidify their learning. Deliverables are in the form of case studies, written assignments, projects, and group work.
Capstone ProjectsThe Risk Capstone requires students to build on their own professional experience and exposure to the academic content of the program to create a meaningful project that demonstrates their ability to take an integrated, enterprise-wide view of risk management.
