Dedicated to education
The need for trained risk experts has never been greater. As it becomes more and more evident that risk impacts every part of an organization—and that one risk is connected to countless others—companies are taking notice and taking action. They’re seeking team members who have a wellrounded understanding of risk’s threats and opportunities, and are able to guide their companies through them with capability and confidence.
That’s why the Risk Institute provides risk education to Fisher students and working professionals whose understanding of risk is critical to organizational success.
Specialized graduate degree
The Specialized Master’s in Risk at Fisher is the first degree program of its kind. Instead of focusing on one specific risk area, this one-year graduate program increases the working professional’s knowledge of risk across an entire enterprise. Learning experiences are largely action-based, incorporating teamwork and projects rooted in current business challenges.
Enhanced risk curriculum
Undergraduate and graduate students at Fisher have meaningful opportunities to benefit from and participate in Risk Institute activities. In addition to learning directly from faculty involved with the Risk Institute, students may contribute to the research efforts and problem-solving pursuits of Risk Institute partners.
Risk education tailored to executives
Every day, risk becomes a more relevant concern for all types of business professionals’ success. Intensive education opportunities conducted at the Risk Institute challenge executive-level professionals to consider the importance of risk and develop strategies for managing risk for their organizations.
