Risk Management for Executives

Strategic perspectives on financial risks

The Risk Management Program provides new perspectives on the strategic implications of Risk Management by helping the participants to understand the conceptual and practical challenges of measuring risk and integrating risk measurement into the firms’ strategy and operations, as well as handling advanced risk management as a tool for organizations in creating value.

The program challenges standard thinking by providing key frameworks, tools and techniques that helps to identify and manage key risks in interconnected and changing systems. From a practical point of view, participants will learn to successfully implement risk-management plans, prioritize inputs and strategic outcomes that minimize the impact of knowns and unknowns. The program is entirely case based and involves the active participation of attendees in scenario planning, and simulation exercises.

The program is based on a long-term collaboration between WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and Stockholm School of Economics.
