Online MBA Risk Management

At a Glance

The MBA is the prime management qualification for managers. Designed for your success, the MBA creates distinctive managers with a comprehensive knowledge of the latest business practices. This specialised MBA in Risk Management explores the range of concepts and functions of risk management and associated practices within the business sector, evaluating how effective risk management processes and practices are and how risk can be addressed and minimised in business in the global context (although there may be some bias towards UK practice in particular with respect to case study discussions, the programme should be considered global in terms of its coverage of risk).

The MBA programmes benefit greatly from the internationality derived from recruiting students from across the globe, and drawing on tutors well qualified in their field.
