MSc Operational Research with Risk

Why Operational Research with Risk?

Risk analysis deals with the assessment and management of risk from unlikely but costly or distressing events. Risk management is becoming an increasingly important subject, partly due to the focus of the media on large disasters and the resulting threat of litigation. As a result most large organisations are now active in producing and maintaining formal risk management strategies, and this provides significant employment opportunities. This MSc will give an Operational Research perspective on risk and risk management.


Structure and course options for the Operational Research with Risk MSc programme

You will take 120 credits of courses in total during Semesters 1 and 2, followed by a 60 credit dissertation which you complete over the summer. The courses you take will be dependent on the availability of courses each year which may be subject to change as the curriculum develops to reflect a modern degree programme.
