Risk and Insurance Management



Every department in every business has experienced deep changes in the market and external environment, pushing companies to face unforeseen challenges with unpredictable ramifications. Many of the factors causing these challenges have not been integrated into the strategic planning process. Consider these points,

  • 59% of executives believe the volume and complexity of risks have changed extensively and among them only 25% believe their organization has a “complete formal risk management process in place.[1]
  • With these increasingly complex dynamics shaping the marketplace, the integration between risk management and strategy is a key priority for companies.
  • Being prepared and trained to address disruptive and contingency events, to take informed strategic decisions and to ensure effective hedging solutions are important objectives for leading firms in many industries.

The major in Risk Management and Insurance develops talent with the strategic capabilities and managerial competences to implement risk analysis, assessment and management. It prepares students to make strategic decisions and create recovery plans, with a particular focus on the insurance market.
