The Risk Institute

The conversation about risk STARTS HERE.
The Risk Institute is where thought leaders, seasoned professionals, and students of risk come together. We’re constantly engaged in an open, collaborative dialog about risk: its complexity, its relevance across all industries, and its potential as a tool for competitiveness and growth.

  • The Risk Institute wraps up inagural executive education series

    The Risk Institute's first education series for executives has come to a close.  In our final session Professors Anil Makhija and Bernadette Minton discussed how to use lessons about the relations among governance, firm value, and risk taking to create a risk culture. Professor Robert Lane lead a panel discussion about the roles of corporate governance and the board of directors as value creators.  Panalists included Don Shackleford (Chairman Ermitus of Fifth-Third Bank), Jerry Jurgensen (former CEO of Nationwide and current board member of AIG) and Bill Lhota (former executive of AEP and board member of various publically traded companies).

    We would like to thank Fisher's Executive Education department as well as Professor Bernadette Minton and our amazing faculty members for all of their great work.  We look forward to announcing the next opportunity to participate in a Risk Institute Executive Education series.  Stay tuned!
