Course Overview

Firms make some of their biggest bets when they establish their strategy. How can a firm set its overall appetite for risk, and evaluate competing strategic initiatives from a risk/reward perspective in the context of its existing portfolio of risks? This course will explore the connections between strategy and enterprise risk management, including the concepts of risk capacity, risk tolerance, and risk profile. It will also look at the role of enterprise risk management in effective decision-making and governance from the perspective of a firm’s board of directors.
