What will I learn?

Harness risk management as an opportunity for positive change and business growth within your organization.

The business of risk management is undergoing a tectonic shift – from a traditional, often narrowly focused and negatively perceived function to one that is more strategic, integrated and constructive. No longer solely focused on core traditional risk concepts (financial, operational, strategic), evolved risk management takes a more holistic approach to the management of critical emerging environment, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities, including organizational ethics, compliance and culture.

In this complex, rapidly changing tech-dominated era, such a holistic enterprise risk approach also requires a close connection to and understanding of organizational resilience – including crisis, business continuity and data management. There is a premium for emotionally intelligent, highly qualified managers and leaders able to deal with the velocity of change, challenge and confusion that is taking place in today’s world and into the foreseeable future.

The unique Master’s in Risk, Resilience and Integrity at Glasgow Caledonian New York College (GCNYC) has been designed for those who want to take a truly global, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach to transforming the way any type of organization approaches risk management.

As a research-based master’s degree, which draws on 144 years of academic excellence, this program will train you to apply only the most relevant academic theories from a variety of disciplines to real life challenges in risk, resilience and integrity management.

We offer full- and part-time options at our beautiful location in SoHo, where you’ll build connections to industry experts each week. You’ll work closely with a diverse cohort of fellow students and faculty with decades of experience to gain the global perspective, multi-industry knowledge and strategic leadership skills needed for a successful career. With a unique focus on risk, resilience and integrity as components of profitable sustainability, you’ll learn to see how these functions can be an instrument of change – and a force for the common good.

We’ll guide you through an independent research project (which can be based on a real-life project at work) to help you develop creative approaches to risk, resilience and integrity management to enable and empower people, planet and profit. You’ll get a world-class education in a broad range of subjects, including enterprise risk management, ethics and compliance, crisis management and business continuity, specific risks such as reputation risk, supply chain, human rights, leadership and culture, and technology to enable holistic value-creating risk management.
