MBA - Business Risk & Resilience

 
Overview

The MBA in Business Risk & Resilience is a specialized MBA, meaning that it contains some of the foundations of a general MBA (economics, finance, managing change) and includes courses that provide an in-depth understanding of how different types of risk (organizational, financial, technological and regulatory) impacting companies can be identified and addressed. Whilst the majority of programs focus on financial risk management, the AIT MBA differentiates itself by focusing primarily on organizational risk although there will be significant focus on financial risk (up to three courses in finance), technological risk (one core course and 3+ electives relating to digital transformation) and regulatory risk (in the risk and finance in ASEAN core course).
