The success of any firm depends on its ability not only to create value for stockholders but also to mitigate risks which adversely affect value. The RMI curriculum focuses on identifying financial and economic characteristics of risks to which firms and individuals are exposed, and developing effective strategies for managing such risks.
Increasingly, nonfinancial companies are recognizing the importance of enterprise-wide risk management and thus are turning to business schools for trained risk managers. There are also career opportunities in the various financial service industries such as insurance, banking, pensions, and investment management.
