Module Description

This module is designed in two parts, building on student’s existing knowledge of corporate risk and exposing them to practical application through case studies and analyses. Emphasising the strong reliance upon insurance programmes to manage risks, the module also introduces a broader range of risk retention and transfer options available today.  

The first part explores enterprise risk management from the senior management and board supervisory standpoint, enabling students to become familiar with corporate risk management processes and internal control and governance issues in general. Furthermore, the module’s concern with enterprise risk management development provides a critical perspective for contemplating improvements to corporate risk management through an understanding of how to integrate risk management within organisations.  

The second part of the module covers the practical knowledge which risk managers require of the insurance industry and the products available. While emphasising the use cases of traditional insurances, it also introduces broader risk financing options and alternative risk transfer mechanisms which corporate risk managers may use to control enterprise risk.
