The aim of this module is for students to develop and extend their understanding of the discipline of risk management, including how risk management links to compliance management and complements effective corporate governance in organisations.
All organisations manage risk, but in the last few decades risk management has become increasingly formalised and organised. A key driver for this has been corporate governance regulation which has emphasised the central role that risk management plays, both in terms of ensuring effective internal control within organisations and in helping to manage risks which may threaten an organisation’s strategic objectives. Hence risk management has become a board level concern, with increased risk reporting and board level discussions on subjects such as risk appetite and risk culture.
In this module students will explore the role of the board in terms of risk management, as well as the people, processes and techniques that can be used to support the board and ensure the effective assessment, monitoring and control of risk at all levels of an organisation

All of the Part Two modules, Risk Management, Development of Strategy and Boardroom Dynamics will have pre-released case studies. Three of the questions in each exam paper will be based on the pre-released case, so you will need to read this case and do some reading associated with it before you come to the exam.
We send an email to all students informing them that the case study is available approximately six weeks before the exam and can be downloaded here.
