Our full-package summer school (food & tent/ camping included in the price!) is a unique chance to learn more about this topic. The objective of risk management is to identify those risks that can lead to business failure and to implement effective strategies to manage them. This holds for any business sector but perhaps more for finance, innovation, information technologies, infrastructure projects, and programs and policies. We will share with you fundamental concepts of risk management that enable you to understand their relevance not only to your own business undertakings but to our society.

Risk management is intricately related to other fields such as safety, security, decision making, governance, communication and this is naturally reflected in our courses’ subjects. Furthermore, our portfolio of contents covers other inherent and contextual aspects of risk management, namely risk modeling, communication of risk, and disaster risk reduction.

Specific modules are devoted to address very varied business sectors such as water and tunneling projects, cyber-security, collaborative construction projects among others. In these, real cases applications will be shown.
