You will be trained to identify and quantify risk. This means you will develop the ability to determine the extent to which risk should be dealt with using financial engineering instruments or other types of solutions, such as reengineering business processes, adapting the firm’s strategy, switching customers/suppliers or taking alternative investment decisions. Some courses are being taught in collaboration with the Master’s programme in Applied Mathematics.
