Enterprise Risk Management


In a global arena fraught with turbulence, the only certainty in the 21st-century business environment is that it is full of uncertainties. The good news is that, by all accounts, risk managers are in high demand.

Enterprise risk management (ERM) is an imperative and holistic management construct for identifying potential threats, risks, and vulnerabilities in an organization and its business enterprise. The Enterprise Risk Management graduate programs at Boston University’s Metropolitan College (MET) prepare you to tackle ERM challenges in today’s business world, enhancing value by providing solutions that mitigate risk across entire business enterprises. According to recent research by Gartner, companies with clear risk management protocols were much more effective in implementing agile responses to the fast-emerging risks of the global coronavirus pandemic. That is just one recent example. Geopolitical factors, financial networks, elaborate supply chains, and shifting economic priorities create myriad opportunities for unforeseen developments and their potential costs. Additionally, new insider threats to the enterprise are now becoming evident as organizations explore new ways to function.

BU MET’s graduate programs in Enterprise Risk Management prepare you for key roles in organizations seeking to implement strategies for risk mitigation and business continuity. We will help you develop the knowledge and tools to establish or reinforce ongoing strategies to perpetually evaluate and mitigate potential disruptions.

The ability to contribute to enterprise risk planning and execution is an important skill for many business leaders, and a credential in ERM from Boston University can give you a strong advantage in the field. We look forward to welcoming you to MET’s Enterprise Risk Management programs.
