Risk Management

Module code: ACFI 2306

Module description

This module is driven by the extremely topical nature of the subject matter and the increased recognition that it is essential to manage corporate risks in order to enhance stakeholder value. It is now recognised that the business agenda has moved away from risk avoidance towards the recognition that risk, if correctly managed, may provide opportunities leading to competitive advantage.

It is also recognised that risk management is an interdisciplinary activity and not one that is soley linked to its traditional location within financial management theory, which is only one element of risk management.

On the module students will specifically consider the risk managment 'cycle' and appreciate how this may be applied and influenced in practice. The process will also be considered within the context of the role of corporate governance regulation.

Additional consideration will be given to various aspects of liquidity and credit default risk, including key features such as credit analysis and credit risk estimation.
