Risk Management

Module code: ACFI 5018

Module description

There are two typos in Module Descriptor as it stands - the words highlighted below need to be added or corrected:

The rationale for the 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.

The study of Risk Management is particularly appropriate, within the context of a postgraduate Business/Management Programme, due to the emphasis on strategic decision-making within such programmes, where risk is likely to be a particular issue.
