This is reflected in the employment market for graduates, through an extreme shortage of qualified personnel. In particular, the security industry is estimated to be the fastest growing service sector in the UK. Increased government and international regulation of organisational risk has also been matched by the need for a greater number of consultants and experts with specialist knowledge.
The Corporate Risk and Security Management MSc programme has similarities to our MSc in Risk Management, however it is structured to provide students with greater flexibility through fewer core units and an enhanced choice of options.
The programme provides greater emphasis on the ‘people’ or ‘human’ issues, associated with corporate risk and security. Hence, the emphasis in this programme is placed on qualitative management of corporate risk and security, rather than a quantitative approach to risk.
Full-time study on this Corporate Risk and Security Management masters degree follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period .
Teaching on the Corporate Risk and Security Management MSc course takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
