Risk has been the mainspring of commerce for centuries. Managing risks to achieve economic gain and avoid economic loss is just as essential for corporate CEOs in the 21st century as it was for Venetian merchants in the 15th century. However, in an increasingly competitive and complex world, the effective management of risk has now become an essential skill for all levels within a business. Even with a plethora of frameworks, guidelines, and models to choose from, there is no 'silver bullet.' Is it practical to address risk effectively by delegating responsibility to a standardized, 'one size fits all' approach, with resources to match? Defects in risk management practices are causing losses amounting to billions of dollars. Boards of Directors are being challenged to accept responsibility for managing risk. International public accounting firms are strongly advising businesses to return to the basics of risk and risk management. This online course lays the foundation for an understanding of business risk. It examines the topic of risk, places it in an historical context, views it from the perspective of business, and takes a long, hard look at how corporate-wide risk management is faring today, and what can be done to improve it.
