Event Details


Risk affects every aspect of human life. At a personal level, dealing with risks in most cases is done intuitively and based on common sense.  Nevertheless, in the field of financial services the risk encountered by firms is multifaceted, far more complex and needs to be managed in a more structured manner.


This module introduces students to the concept of financial risk and how this should be managed, as well as providing them with a framework to identify, assess, treat and respond to risks and opportunities at all levels in the financial industry. It covers accepted frameworks and techniques to manage risks and exploit opportunities. After completing the course, students will be equipped to make better decisions in the increasingly uncertain business environment.
