Risk Management

The Master of Science, or MSc, is an academic degree awarded to those who effectively complete about two years of intensive study on a given topic. Many MSc courses offer a combination of classroom and research-based curriculum.

The process of identifying, analyzing and accepting or taking measures to reduce risks is called risk management. Students learn to analyze the potential losses or risks involved with an investment and subsequently take the proper action.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
