M.S. in Risk Management

Welcome to the Risk Management programs at Queens College, located in the global nexus of the world’s insurance and capital markets.

Our program seeks highly motivated individuals with strong communication and analytical backgrounds looking to advance their careers or to gain a foothold in the growing area of risk management within corporate and financial organizations. At Queens College, we are committed to teaching graduate students about how risk creates opportunities for profit and growth as well as how risk creates the potential for losses and intangible costs.

Our distinguished faculty are accomplished academic thought leaders as well as risk management professionals from industry who bring the real world into the classroom. Important components of the curriculum include hands-on, team-based learning and real-world projects, all with an emphasis on communication. Our approach to risk management is interdisciplinary. Finance, accounting, quantitative analytics, and market knowledge each plays an integral role in preparing graduates to recognize and quantify risk and the decision tools needed to mitigate, transfer, retain, or exploit risk as opportunity.
