WHO WE ARE

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.

WHY THE RISK INSTITUTE MATTERS

Just 15 years ago, the risk management function of most companies lived in the insurance realm. But today every facet of a company, from the C-suite on down, is affected by risk management practices: IT, HR, Communications and Marketing, Finance and Legal just to name a few.

We operate at a unique intersection between our faculty, students, and professionals from a broad cross-section of industries. With our leading-edge approach to risk management, The Risk Institute creates a unique exchange for risk-centered conversations, ideas, and strategies that can't happen anywhere else.


 

We [Huntington] are energized to be a core partner in the Risk Institute to support the evolution and growth of risk education and readiness, so that ever-changing risk challenges will be met by creative solutions.

Helga HoustonChief Risk Officer, Huntington

We see a lot of value in having the ability to tap into other industry members and learn from their experiences.... We want to be more involved in the risk community.
