Risk Management

Business Administration 434

This course provides an introduction to enterprise risk management, where the management of risk is integrated and coordinated across the entire organization. All categories of risk (financial, market and operational) are studied. Value-at-risk, which is the main method for measuring risk, is examined in detail. Other measures, such as earnings-at-risk and shareholder value added, are also considered. Finally, the course also examines how enterprise risk management may be implemented, and the issues that arise when one attempts to change the culture of a firm.
