M.S. in Risk Management


Risk Management at Queens College is located in the global nexus
of the world’s insurance and capital markets.

Our program seeks highly motivated individuals with strong communication and analytical aptitude looking to advance their careers or to gain a foothold in the growing area of risk management. 

Our distinguished faculty are accomplished academic thought leaders and risk management professionals from industry who bring the real world into the classroom. The curriculum includes hands-on, team-based learning and real-world projects.  Our approach to risk management is interdisciplinary.  Finance, accounting, quantitative analytics, and market knowledge each plays an integral role. We prepare graduates to recognize and quantify risk and the decision tools needed to mitigate, transfer, retain, or exploit risk as opportunity.

We hope you can make at least one of them and I look forward to meeting you and seeing you again.
