Risk management now a key driver in business and there is a rapidly increasing requirement for Masters graduates to provide core risk management assistance. Few organisations today would make any major decisions concerning new projects without first assessing the risks involved.
Risk management is a key discipline in its own right, but also needs to meet the requirements of corporate governance and ethical practice. As the importance of this area grows following the global credit crunch and recent financial scandals, there is a growing demand for highly motivated individuals who can operate successfully within this field internationally and cross-culturally.
This course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to develop the core competencies and technical skills which will enable you to contribute to and to flourish in such an environment. In particular, you will develop and apply your decision-making skills to complex practical situations. The comparison of theory and practice provides a rich source of material in this area and serves to prepare you for a variety of possible roles within an international business organisation.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
