Business Administration Insurance and Risk Management
Bow Valley Collegewww.bowvalleycollege.ca
Risk management is a structured approach to managing uncertainty in business, arising from threats that may emerge from the environment, technology, humans, organizations or politics. The objective of risk management is to reduce defined risks to an acceptable level through risk assessment, risk management, and risk mitigation. These activities are grounded in a wide range of analytical and technical skills. Mismanagement, crime, fire, third party liability, and pollution liability are all examples of risk. Risk management also encompasses the related fields of Insurance Risk, Business Continuity, and compliance with Occupational Health and Safety regulations and practices.
