Effective risk management is increasingly becoming recognised as a necessary condition for successful organisational performance. Consequently, the development of more systematic approaches to risk management is now a major concern across both the public and private sectors.

More specifically, formal treatment of risk and uncertainty is needed in the management of all aspects of management including: strategy, investment decisions, projects, asset utilisation, business continuity, corporate security, health and safety, liabilities, and risk financing.

The broad scope of the risk management programme explicitly recognises the multi-disciplinary nature of most risk management issues, and is concerned directly with the transfer and integration of concepts, techniques and best practice across different areas of application.

Individuals with a formal qualification in risk management broadly defined are highly sought after by a variety of employers. The risk management programme is designed to provide such a qualification.

Full-time study on our MSc programmes follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period.

Teaching takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
