Any organization, large or small, depends on employees working for the firm’s best interests. Because people sometimes act against these priorities, it’s up to risk managers to identify potential hazards and put systems in place to avoid serious legal or financial trouble. The Risk Management concentration from Concordia University, Nebraska provides a thorough immersion in this important, in-demand field. As a risk manager, you’ll learn how to analyze an organization’s entire operations, from small transactions to large-scale actions, and identify areas that are most vulnerable to fraud or allow exposure to unnecessary risk. Risk managers must establish compliance programs to ensure that all company practices satisfy the latest versions of state and federal law. As a risk manager, you will work closely with both external regulatory agencies and internal stakeholders to avoid costly mistakes. From cash register skimming to falsified revenue statements, the risk of fraud can damage any organization’s finances and reputation.
