Course Description

Strategy and enterprise risk management are two sides of the same coin in the efforts of companies to create value. The strategy that positions the firm essentially determines the risks that need to be managed, but the chosen strategy must reflect a comprehensive view of the risks to which the strategy exposes the firm. Unlike some aspects of management both strategy and risk management must be approached from a holistic and integrative perspective. Rather than the techniques and tools of risk management, we focus upon how a firm must be organized to (1) recognize risks; (2) identify risks; (3) measure risks; (4) monitor risks; and (5) disclose risks. While this course is specifically concerned with financial services institutions, the strategic issues addressed are of concern to all enterprises.
