Operational Research with Risk

Risk analysis deals with the assessment and management of risk from unlikely but costly or distressing events. Risk management is becoming an increasingly important subject, partly due to the focus of the media on large disasters and the resulting threat of litigation. As a result most large organisations are now active in producing and maintaining formal risk management strategies, and this provides significant employment opportunities. This MSc will give an Operational Research perspective on risk and risk management.
