Every department in every business has experienced deep changes in the market and external environment, pushing companies to face unforeseen challenges with unpredictable ramifications. Many of the factors causing these challenges have not been integrated into the strategic planning process. Consider these points:
59% of executives believe the volume and complexity of risks have changed extensively and among them only 25% believe their organization has a “complete formal risk management process in place”1.
With these increasingly complex dynamics shaping the marketplace, the integration between risk management and strategy is a key priority for companies. Being prepared and trained to address disruptive and contingency events, to take informed strategic decisions and to ensure effective hedging solutions are important objectives for leading firms in many industries.
The major in Risk Management and Insurance develops talent with the strategic capabilities and managerial competences to implement risk analysis, assessment and management. It prepares students to make strategic decisions and create recovery plans, with a particular focus on the insurance market.
The master is aimed at students with a BA who want to integrate theoretical and practical knowledge. Fluent English and personal motivation are required.
The Master in Management and Technology is a one-year, full-time program and is divided into four terms. To access each term, students are required to successfully pass exams.
LUISS Business School welcomes its new students with an Induction Week that hosts workshops on global megatrends and scenarios, useful study methods, seminars that will cover the key topics for professional growth, from developing an effective brand identity to using digital tools, and explain the basic skills needed for the studies: how to analyse and solve a case study. Within the Induction Week the students will get to know the main people that they will be interacting with during their studies in the LUISS Business School: Programme Coordinators, staff of Career Service, Corporate Relations and Marketing Office.
International Students have the opportunity to attend an Italian Crash Course before the Induction Week.
After the Induction Week, Term 1 focuses on General Management courses to provide strong business and economics fundamentals. During Terms 2 and 3, students will learn the cornerstones of risk management, mapping causes and effects of the existing risk typologies on firm health, growth and sustainability.
The Career Service and Learning Lab activities will take place throughout the second and the third terms. Term 4 is dedicated to the Field Project during which students will put their knowledge into practice.
