Master Risk Management

Piazza del Duomo, Pisa

Piazza del Duomo, Pisa

The Master Risk Management (MRM) is an international, full time, Master course organized by the Dipartimento di Economia e Management, University of Pisa, in collaboration with some prominent Italian and international financial institutions, banks and pension funds. After the first three successful editions (job placement around 80% in the first two editions), the call for the 2016-2017 edition is now open.

The course is entirely taught in English and is meant to provide students with cutting edge theoretical and practical skills to manage the main sources of risk characterizing financial markets, insurance institutions, pension funds or business.
The novelty of the MRM is that it is inspired by an interdisciplinary approach.
This key feature is due to the evidence that globalization needs managers able to analyze risk under different points of view and suggest integrated solutions.
The graduates will be endowed with strong analytic tools and advanced methodologies for risk management, which will be taught by both prominent international academic faculty and managers from financial, insurance and business institutions.

After six months of front classes, in which both academic faculty and professional managers will alternate, in the second term the students must elaborate a project work, either as a research work or as a report on an internship-based activity of at least three months.
Such internship opportunity will be provided by the MRM, thanks to the partners participating to its Corporate Network, or by the students themselves.
All applicants benefit from the University of Pisa’s student policy and facilities.
Scholarships are available for some of the MRM’students.

The Master Risk Management graduates are suitable to join international business or financial institutions, pension funds and insurance companies as risk managers, both as internal auditors or as technical analysts.

The Master Risk Management offers an amount of about 8.000 euro for scholarships.


The MRM Admission Committee will consider applications as follows:
First deadline: 11 June 2016
Second recommended deadline for non-Italian students: 23 September 2016

Second deadline for Italian students: 4 October 2016

Applications are examined on a rolling basis. Due to the high number of applications, early applicants have a greater chance to be admitted.
