Risk managers are highly trained professionals that supervise programs to minimize risks and losses that may occur within an organization. Risk managers typically need at least a bachelor degree in risk management, finance, or other related field. Many have a master degree in business administration with focus on risk management. Prospective risk managers typically complete courses in finance, risk theory, insurance, and profit prevention and loss. Employment of risk managers is expected to grow as fast as average for all professions, increasing 8% from 2008 to 2018. The growth and expansion of the financial industry and regulatory changes will drive job growth.
