At the The Risk Management (Hons) programme at Glasgow Caledonian University you will 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. A holistic approach to understanding risk allows students to enter any industry sector on graduation.
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.
Leading companies come directly to GCU to recruit graduates from this programme. Graduates have gone on to work with Camelot, Network Rail, PricewaterhouseCoopers, GlaxoSmithKline, Scottish Power, Aviva, Lloyds of London, Balfour Beatty, Tesco Financial Services, local authorities and government organisations, Morgan Stanley, Marsh Inc, AON and the NHS.
