Certainty in a world of uncertainty.

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School MS in Enterprise Risk Management program develops managers and leaders capable of anticipating and managing events that destroy assets, disrupt enterprise-wide processes, and spark unexpected consequences. Here, you’ll learn how to deal with known and unknown risks, mastering the strategies for steering your organization clear of hazards while establishing your own expertise in this fast-moving field.

You’ll examine real-world scenarios such as financial meltdowns and customer service crises— events that have hobbled companies and national economies. Students graduating from the program emerge with the skills and experience to help their organizations:

  • Avoid disruptions and respond quickly
  • Develop and implement a crisis management communications plan
  • Protect, contain, and preserve cyber security resources
  • Manage security systems, domains, rights, and protections
  • Enhance supply chain responsiveness and resilience
  • Monitor emerging trends that call for a strategic response

Harnessing the resources of a world-class university.

In collaboration with departments across the Johns Hopkins University, the Carey Business School’s comprehensive MS program addresses risk management, security, and resiliency in all areas of private- and public-sector enterprises. Students work side-by-side with peers and experts who bring a wide range of experience spanning dozens of industries, offering a diversity of knowledge and perspective that conventional ERM programs can’t provide.
