Managing Financial Risk (BB841)

Managing financial risk explores the various financial risks that confront all institutions - credit risk, liquidity and refinancing risk, interest-rate risk, foreign exchange risk and operational risk. The module then examines how these risks can be both measured and managed. It uses many recent actual examples of risk management practices adopted in the public and private sectors - some good, some bad and some very ugly. By the end of the module you should have a full appreciation of how vulnerability to financial risks arises and how you, as a manager, can contribute to their effective management within your institution.
