Enterprise Risk Management

Enterprise Risk is a growing discipline in leading business schools because of the need to address potential business derailleurs.  In this complex, volatile and uncertain business environment, leaders must avoid all the endless opportunities to make bad decisions. The question then becomes, how do you balance risk versus reward?

The reality is…proactive management of risk is not a just-in-case solution, but an opportunity to strengthen your core business and ultimately drive cash flow.

In this course, our team of faculty and industry experts will equip you with the necessary risk mitigation tools to effectively develop and implement risk strategy and appropriate scenario planning through critical and systems thinking. Our faculty, risk experts who represent a range of key business areas, will provide real-world case studies, insights and experiences to help you navigate the macroeconomic forces, competition and organizational drivers affecting the risk environment of your business today.
