This course examines the multi-dimensional study of risk with aspects of financial risk, governance and ethical risk and addresses more traditional practices of risk management.
Risk management now a key driver in business and there is a rapidly increasing requirement for Masters graduates to provide core risk management assistance. Few organisations today would make any major decisions concerning new projects without first assessing the risks involved.
