Have you considered a career in Risk Management?
Whether you are considering studying risk management or are just about to embark on your career, risk management will equip you with the resources required to become an integral part of any organisation, irrespective of the industry. The reason for this is that risk management has become a qualified profession in its own right, something which professionals are striving towards at the onset of their careers. Whilst the management of risk is an evolving discipline, varying from strategic to process, very few companies would make any significant decisions without first assessing the risks involved.
What does Risk Management entail?
Risk is part of every human endeavour from the moment we get up in the morning to when we go to sleep at night. As with everything in life, businesses are exposed to risks (that matter) of different degrees that either provide opportunities or lead to undesirable outcomes. A broad definition of risk is required in order to capture both the positive and negative outcomes. A risk is defined in the ISO 31 000 standard as the effect of uncertainty on objectives, whether positive or negative. The coupling of risk and reward is central to the risk definition and to the innovations that have been created in the study of all business activities.
