Bachelor of Arts in Security and Strategic Studies – Risk Management

As part of the BA in Security nd Strategic Studies, the Risk Management specialization emphasizes the assessment of all kinds of risks and the way the actors (public authorities, international organizations, private sector, NGOs, civil society or individuals) account for them in their work, administration or business environment, for the future. The assessment of risk is both empirical (results from other crises) and theoretical – what might happen? The conceptualization of risks implies a combination of qualitative data (statistics) and quantitative research (how the public authorities set the priorities for instance).
