Ideally, business and risk managers play complementary roles in the process of setting and achieving an organisation’s objectives. In practice however, a lack of knowledge and understanding of the interconnectedness of these roles can create misunderstanding and conflict between these role players.


The resulting need for qualitative post-graduate risk management education and applied risk research has led to the creation of the Centre for Applied Risk Management (UARM) in the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Information Technology of the Vaal Triangle Campus of the North-West University in 2012.

Our first intake of part-time MCom students started their studies in 2014 and graduated in 2016.
