Glasgow Caledonian University Risk Management

BA/BA (Hons) Risk Management

Organisations are legally, financially and morally required to manage their risk bearing activities. Risk is an inherent part of business and risk managers are prized for their skills by organisations of all types and in all sectors.

Accredited by CII (Chartered Insurance Institute), this is the only programme of its kind in the UK and leading companies approach the university directly when seeking to employ risk graduates.

During your studies you’ll explore the risk management process including the identification of organisational risk, analysis of the likely effect of those risks, design and selection of control measures and the monitoring and evaluation of these measures.

You will learn how these techniques apply to real life examples such as the Gulf oil spill, the collapse of Enron and the recent crisis in the global banking system. The emphasis is on the practical application of specialist knowledge and skills, complemented by regular talks from industry-related speakers and corporate sponsors.
