Risk management isn’t just about buying derivatives—it’s a field that is increasingly vital for any business that hopes to control exposure and make strategic decisions about what risks to assume. At Queens College, our job placement rate is exemplary, with virtually all our graduates working in risk management or related fields.
Why pursue Risk Management at Queens College?
The concentration is designed to give students a solid risk management foundation, including basic risk management skills in finance, math, risk transfer markets, and financial modeling, plus training in enterprise risk management. The four graduate-level finance electives will further enhance the student’s expertise in accounting, modeling and programming for asset liability management, financial instruments, and econometric analysis of financial variables and capital markets. The curriculum is designed for students with computer science backgrounds but covers a vast majority of the CFA Institute’s body of knowledge as well as that of the Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society, so it should help students be well prepared to study for and pass the various exams required for professional designations from the three organizations should they wish to pursue these career paths.
