Organizations interested in developing positions of increasing global risk responsibility should consider the MSRM program as a professional development opportunity.

Making the Case for Sponsorship

Advanced risk management capabilities are high on the executive agenda; they are seen as a critical business driver and a source of sustained growth and long-term competitive advantage.

Many applicants find it helpful to present their sponsorship request as a business case. Point to specific ways in which your MS in Risk Management experience will benefit your employer. Is your company growing or expanding into international markets? Has the scope of your responsibilities changed or will it change in the near future? Be specific in describing how the degree will have an impact on your organization; understand how it will help you in both your current and future roles at your company.

Why Invest?

Today, across industries and geographic locations, corporations need employees who have the ability to thrive in an increasingly complex and volatile world.  The MSRM program gives sponsoring organizations the opportunity to invest in the growth and development of exceptional managers capable of navigating future risk management issues to help companies achieve their most important business priorities.

Our students learn to think differently, becoming more innovative and open-minded risk professionals who establish a global network of students, faculty, and alumni to leverage upon at work. The result is a newfound, enterprise-wide approach to effectively managing the spectrum of business risks in a way that enables sustainable, long-term growth of your organization.
