The Risk management specialisation recognises the fundamental importance of risk management in today's commercial world and seeks to provide graduates with extended skills in the strategic and process applications of risk management. This specialisation will prepare graduates for the increasingly complex risk management issues faced when employed in many areas of business and government. The range of units undertaken will greatly assist those seeking employment in managerial positions where risk management is an expanding field of practice. The management of risk is an evolving discipline that builds on current knowledge in a diverse range of activities. It is an extension of existing knowledge and experience and is increasingly being embedded as a fundamental business requirement by principle and legislation. Risk varies from strategic to process; the specialisation focuses on the enterprise implementation of the management of risk.
