Consequently, the development of more systematic approaches to risk management is now a major concern across both the public and private sectors. More specifically, formal treatment of risk and uncertainty is needed in the management of all aspects of management including: strategy, investment decisions, projects, asset utilisation, business continuity, corporate security, health and safety, liabilities, and risk financing.
The broad scope of this Risk Management masters degree explicitly recognises the multi-disciplinary nature of most risk management issues, and is concerned directly with the transfer and integration of concepts, techniques and best practice across different areas of application.
Individuals with a formal qualification in risk management broadly defined are highly sought after by a variety of employers. The risk management programme is designed to provide such a qualification.
