    For an organization to succeed, it must strike a balance between risk and reward to create, preserve and realize enterprise value. Effective risk management is an essential competency that supports business performance in a changing environment. It makes a considerable difference over the long term, yet few business leaders have benefited from training in this area and many struggle to implement it simply because they lack the proper techniques.

    That is what our dynamic three-module Masters Certificate in Risk Management and Business Performance Leadership program – the only one of its kind in Canada – is all about: meeting business performance goals by effectively managing the risks your organization faces.

    You can now participate in your choice of three modules, leading to a Masters Certificate. Whether you attend a single standalone module or the full program, your risk management proficiency will improve, along with your organization’s success in this area.
