Course content

Developed in response to the global attention to risk and insurance – particularly from a technological and political view, our MSc Insurance Risk Management course focuses on the relationship between the two disciplines, ensuring you graduate ready to become a leading force in any organisation.

There is an increased demand for directors, risk managers and consultants qualified at postgraduate level, to help appreciate the increasing demand for organisations to implement effective risk reporting systems. With this in mind, our course is designed to enhance your skills and train you to become a qualified, assured director.

This is a part-time course delivered online, with material developed for you to explore and apply the techniques of risk management to the world of insurance.

The course is aligned to the Certificate and Advanced Diploma in Insurance of the Chartered Insurance Institute, which grants students significant exemptions from the Advanced Diploma from the CII. It is also aligned with the International Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management from the Institute of Risk Management.

You’ll be encouraged to share your work experiences and to evaluate real-life case studies, both of which will bring real-life experiences to your studies.
