This conversion course is ideal for graduates who would like to change subjects or career direction.

It examines the multi-dimensional study of risk with aspects of finance, governance and ethics and addresses more traditional practices of risk management.

Risk management is now a key driver in business and there is a rapidly increasing requirement for postgraduates to provide core risk management assistance. Few organisations today would make any major decisions concerning new projects without first assessing the risks involved.

This course will give you with the opportunity to develop the competencies and technical skills for contributing and flourishing in this industry. In particular, you'll develop and apply your decision-making skills to complex practical situations.

The comparison of theory and practice provides a rich source of material in this area and serves to prepare you for a variety of possible roles within an international business organisation.
