Certificate in Risk Management
Read about Laurier's risk management courses featured in the November 2012 edition of Insurancewest!
Risk management involves a comprehensive study and review of the loss
exposures facing an organization. It involves understanding the risks
facing the organization and identifying the means to prevent or minimize
these losses in the most cost-effective manner.
Wilfrid Laurier University offers the required courses for the Canadian Risk Management Certificate, in conjunction with the Global Risk Management Institute. To obtain the certificate, students must complete the three designated risk management requisites outlined below. All three courses run over 13 weeks and will be offered consecutively at Wilfrid Laurier University in future fall and winter terms.
