Loras Graduate Program Offering Risk Analysis Summer Hybrid Course

In this time of uncertainty, an important part of business planning is identification, analysis, and management of risk. To that end, Loras College is offering a 3-credit Risk Analysis graduate level course in a hybrid format this summer to help equip you with that knowledge. This spreadsheet-based course examines a variety of models geared to addressing business and social needs. Uncertainty is explicitly analyzed through the use of scenarios, simulation, and other techniques. Emphasis is placed on understanding and communicating the important uncertainties associated with any plan, and developing ways to incorporate these into business plans.
