The Risk Institute at The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business is a consortium of forward-thinking companies and academics that understand effective risk management strategies not only protect firms, but position firms to create growth and value.

We help members consider risk from all perspectives: legal, operational, strategic, reputational, talent, financial, and so many more.
