Course content

Risk is one of the most vital issues in modern global business. Improved risk and investment management decisions are the key components to the successful performance of all financial and non-financial organisations. This programme will equip the managers and regulators of tomorrow with the skills they need to lead their organisations to growth.

The purpose of this MSc is therefore to equip the future generation of managers and regulators with the skill set necessary for dealing with a wide range of risks. The programme ensures that our students are best placed to find high-quality employment in an area which is presently an employment hot spot for recruitment to financial institutions, regulatory bodies, government agencies and risk management divisions in large non-financial firms.
