Risk Management has become a key process to assess, allocate and manage international risks in a context of increasing uncertainty : it has to take into consideration a large number of factors, for the account or under the control of various actors : companies, customers, governments, shareholders and stakeholders (NGOs).

The first aim of this course is to provide a general understanding of risks, from both an economic and financial perspective, according to the levels of risks attached to corporate strategies and targeted countries.
