Risk management is an important issue for financial institutions, and is receiving more attention lately. In the financial world, there is an increasing need for academics with knowledge of risk management. They are needed for the relevant quantitative methods, and also for insights into new (technical) developments. With this minor, you generate knowledge in these areas and you develop skills that are useful within financial institutions. The minor forms a good start for a career within a financial institution and is always a good basis for other positions.
This minor offers five courses, which are briefly described below. Alternatively, you have the opportunity to take a 12 EC internship as part of the minor instead of two of the listed courses. If you choose this option you have to arrange your internship in either in periods 1 and 2, or in periods 2 and 3. In case you have questions about internships you can contact Career Services at the Faculty of Business and Economics. They can answer your questions and support you in the application process.
