Integrated Risk Management

 

Integrated Risk Management

Master, part-time

Overview

Sustainably and effectively preparing an organization at all management levels for an uncertain future and aligning it accordingly is the essence of risk management. This requires risk management to be implemented across the entire enterprise in the operational and strategic structures as well as in the central key functions of the organization so that they can all be networked and controlled as a whole. The master's degree program provides the skills required for this task. As a graduate you will be able to develop and implement a comprehensive risk management system, fill key positions and support the management as a business partner in strategic decisions.

What you can offer

You stand out with your constructive, integrated thinking and solution-oriented approach. Your strengths include moreover a systematic approach to an uncertain future and the ability to think outside of the box. "Nothing is impossible" is more than just an empty phrase for you; it motivates you to proactively and analytically detect potential threats, hazards and risks even in a complex context, to analyze and to develop comprehensive strategies. The challenge of operationally and strategically anchoring risk management in a company excites you. You possess fundamental knowledge of business administration or process and quality management.

What we offer you

We offer you an academic education that is oriented towards the needs of the business sector following a didactic concept adapted for part-time study.

Over the years we have established a strong network of representatives from business, politics and special interest groups that we have expanded and strengthened through a strategic partnership with the Institute of Internal Auditors Austria (IIA Austria). Thus in our teaching and research we can draw on experts from the industry with international experience and conduct joint research projects in which we focus on further developing innovative management approaches. In addition, we also support partners from profit and non-profit organizations in an advisory capacity in their projects, for example in 2014 we helped the Province of Burgenland develop a security strategy. We are one of the first universities to implement the "Three Lines of Defense" model in our education.

What makes this degree program special?

  • Unique education among the German speaking countries
  • Combination of business and management skills
  • Internationally recognized certificates: Risk, Process and Quality Manager, Certified Internal Auditor

With this part-time degree program you will receive an education that is unique among the German-speaking countries and combines risk management with business management, process and quality management and internal audit expertise. Integrated risk management is an education that can be applied in a wide range of business sectors including profit and non-profit organizations, small and medium enterprises as well as large corporations, providing you with excellent career opportunities. In addition, you have the opportunity to acquire internationally recognized certificates. The innovative approach of the degree program follows “The Three Lines of Defense” model, which sets new standards in risk management and serves as the basis for a functioning control and monitoring system for businesses.


Performance indicators are an essential tool in risk management. It requires both the development of financial and procedural indicators. To meet these requirements, different focuses are set in the first semester:

In the following semesters, you will learn various qualitative and quantitative analysis methods. Thus you will learn to identify potential hazards to analyze operational and strategic risk situations and to develop multidisciplinary approaches to a complex environment. Finally, you will learn to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, the controls and the management and monitoring processes from the perspective of the internal audit. You will acquire the basic authorization for the certificate as a certified internal auditor.
