Students will develop a command of the risk management process, including risk identification, assessment, analysis and control. Expected learning experiences in London include Parliament, Churchill War Rooms and Imperial War and Transport museums and in Dublin include Jameson Distillery, Kilmainham Gaol, Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College, Croke Park Stadium and the Guinness Storehouse. These sites provide a great lens for viewing how risk has been faced, understood and acted upon, each providing vivid and real insights to risk management practices both past and present. Comparisons of United States, British and Irish practices are emphasized throughout./p>
