Get new perspectives on the strategic implications of risk management.


Measuring, controlling and managing risks is becoming ever more central to financial firms. The rising complexity of financial markets, swings in volatility, and unprecedented low interest rates all contribute to a rising need for effective organization and integration of risk management into financial firms’ strategy and operations. Additionally, new regulations, spurred by the central role of the financial industry in recent macro economic turbulence, put additional pressure on insurers, banks, and other financial firms. In this challenging environment, how can companies ensure that risk management is robust, reflected in strategic choices, and deeply embedded in operations?

Get the skillset to rationally analyze the high stakes concept of risk, come hell or high water

WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) have developed a risk management program that is specifically tailored to bankers’ and corporate executives’ needs. This program helps corporate leaders to understand conceptual and practical challenges of measuring risk and integrating risk measurement into firms’ strategy and operations. The program will further handle advanced risk management as a tool for organizations in creating value.

The program strives to provide the skills that matter most when managers face high-stake challenges, dealing with uncertain and fast-moving environments, or find themselves in multiple crossroads that involve careful consideration of the known, unknown, and their likelihood. The program aims to provide you with the skillset to rationally analyze the high stakes concept of risk, come hell or high water.

Learn to successfully implement risk management plans, prioritize inputs and strategic outcomes that minimize the impact of knowns and unknowns

The program will bring together managers dealing with risk management for four days of intensive work on the financial, strategic, and organizational impact of the new risk landscape. The program is taught by faculty from WHU and SSE, two of Europe’s leading business schools, and split into two two-day modules, one in Stockholm and one in Frankfurt. The program is entirely case based: participants will take an active role under the experienced guidance of faculty.
