Our program is designed to fully cover all the areas of Financial Risk that firms have to consider, among them Credit Risk, Market Risk, Operational Risk or Liquidity Risk. Nevertheless, even though the focus of the program is primarily financial since risks are, at the end and in many cases, securitized, we do not leave aside other important risk such as the Technology Risk or the Geo-Strategical Risk that are becoming more and more important to firms, which operate in a global and increasingly automatized environment.

The Master has been designed in an integrated manner, with the focus on Risk as the main aspect to consider in any economic or financial decision. For this reason all the tools and concepts that are needed as preliminaries (e.g. Corporate Finance, Financial Products and Markets or Quantitative tools) are presented not from a general point of view but contextualized in the framework of Risk Management.

We deeply believe that this program will provide you with powerful tools that will foster your professional career both in the case that you are a young professional interested in Risk Management or a seasoned manager who recognizes the importance of a deeper understanding of the new abilities that firms require.
