What is the course about?

The course brings together the critical elements of strategy and risk and outlines how and why they need to work together in an increasingly uncertain world. Various tools to help risk and strategy professionals evaluate and analyse their specific contexts are taught, together with how the human element plays out in risk appetite and culture and ultimately decision making.
