Risk Management for Corporate Leaders



As companies adapt to the aftershocks of the global recession, risk management is a top priority for their senior executives and boards—and for those of nonprofit and public-sector enterprises as well. The financial crisis revealed that risk management processes cannot be effective if they are siloed and fragmented, and that senior executives must understand the assumptions and data used in those processes. To address these challenges, HBS Executive Education has developed Risk Management for Corporate Leaders. In this program, you will learn how to identify the different types of risk facing your company, achieve an appropriate balance between innovation and risk, and protect your company from the consequences of uncertain and unexpected events.
