Obiettivi formativi

The scope of the course is to describe principles, methods and practices for risk management. In coherence with the international standard 31.000/2009, theoretical and practical risk management approaches and tools for assessing (following the phases of risk identification, measurement and evaluation) and mitigating risks are described both in the strategic, operational and financial perspective. At the end of the course, students should be able to: - address key strategic and operational risks into different functions and processes within a single organization and along a value chain, - measure the risk exposure and to select the appropriate tools for managing a risk portfolio. These competences are relevant for managers and researchers in the fields of management and economics. Business cases and case studies will complete the program.
