What You Can Expect
Managing Risk to Protect Assets and Reputation
Designed to help business leaders reassess their approach to risk management, this Executive Education program explores why some companies fail despite having sophisticated models of risk exposure. You will learn why risk management must be a key responsibility for senior executive leadership and corporate boards. Knowing when to turn down seemingly profitable opportunities that could expose your company to excessive risks, you will be better able to drive—and preserve—the integrity and sustainability of your business.
Turning Risk into Competitive Advantage
By exploring the three levels of risk hierarchy, you will learn how to build and integrate processes that anticipate, prioritize, and mitigate threats across the enterprise. In addition to determining which risks your company should insure or hedge against, you will learn how to analyze which risks you decide to manage and mitigate internally as a source of competitive advantage. Equipped with a personal Key Risk Indicator scorecard that incorporates risk into strategy execution, you will return to your company better prepared to turn short-range risks into long-term opportunities.
"The biggest benefits for me have been the opportunity to walk away with other perspectives on risk, some structured exposure to real-life cases, and more insight into how people have reacted and coped in these situations. This will clearly have an impact on my approach to risk and managerial challenges in the future."
