This pioneer program incorporates traditional and innovative modeling techniques, but aims to situate this knowledge within the larger context of business strategy and risk management. The field of risk management has evolved rapidly and significantly, post the financial crisis of 2007-2010, and will help prepare for those risk management discussions that arise. Graduates of this program will enhance their academic capabilities and credentials in an area of expertise that is fundamental to sustainable performance of their organizations.

They will be ahead of the curve because they will have the capacity to understand and manage risk from a broad systemic and strategic perspective. Additionally, they will learn innovative modeling techniques and become equipped with a tool set that will enable them to understand how a firm’s strategy and business contours drive risk exposure profiles


The Master of Science in Risk Management Program is a one year, executive friendly, part-time schedule with a May start date. It consists of five modules held over one year, rotating between New York City, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
