Managing Risk in Organizations

MGMT 525
Description: Organizations use the word risk in many contexts. Using an integrative perspective, students investigate operational, geopolitical and reputational risks, as well as those from the vagaries of nature and how the willingness to take risks can vary across both organizations and geography. Students consider how to minimize internal risks and how to prepare for external ones. Through the lens of organizational culture, students also explore the impact on organizations when employees are encouraged to be innovative and creative by taking risks.
