Exploring This Job

You can learn more about the field of risk management by reading Financial Risk Management For Dummies (For Dummies, 2015) and Risk Management: Concepts and Guidance (Auerbach Publications, 2014). Talk to risk managers about their jobs. Ask your counselor or a business teacher for help setting up an information interview. Once you enter college, join risk management or business clubs. Consider competing in the Spencer-RIMS Risk Management Challenge (, a competition for college students in the U.S. and Canada that will help you to develop your risk management skills. Participants receive a case study and must develop a comprehensive risk management program to address the issue.
