Program Description

MA in Risk Management

Kadir Has University

MA program in Risk Management is designed to provide an advanced foundation in risk studies. The competence targets of the program spans modeling of risks, techniques of risk management and knowledge of legal regulations over a spectrum running from local to global, from financial sector to real sector and from micro- to macro scales of economic activity.

In the MA program in Risk Management, as a common element of all programs offered by the KHas Business School, learning is considered as a holistic process over time and across space; it begins in the core and elective courses delivered in-class and continues during project work, meetings with speakers renowned in their fields and communication among alumni. This is believed to establish a strong bridge between theory and practice.

The interdisciplinary perspective of the MA program in Risk Management endows participants with skills to perform multi-faceted and holistic analysis of risks. The participants are believed to serve as advanced specialists at both public and private sector institutions. At the same time, participants with an academic orientation are provided with a sound knowledge of methodology and toolset to create new knowledge in their fields.

Problems encountered in professional life are often ill-defined; compared to usual textbook problems they require creative solutions against the quite limited amount of preliminary information. This transforms problem solving from a solely technical procedure to an art. To provide program participants with such an understanding, KHas Business School maintains a rapid and effective, socially and environmentally responsible design culture that emphasizes sustainability and norms of ethical behavior.

As a member of this program, the participants will enhance their technical skills to apply to the problems of a dynamic and uncertain business environment.

All participants are expected to document their individual academic/technical achievements by submitting a graduation project or a master’s thesis. Earlier admission to all programs are on a “project” (non-thesis) basis. That status can be turned to “thesis” conditional upon academic success and orientation.
