This program is inspired from Professor Randall Kroszner’s experience as a Federal Reserve Governor during the 2008 financial crises to help senior executives mitigate risk.
CHICAGO — HSD—a five-week premium live-online program—is designed as a response to COVID-19 in which many leaders found themselves making high-stake decisions amid considerable uncertainty. This program helps leaders move ahead in times of uncertainty by gaining the tools to build a more resilient organization and make strategic risk and leadership decisions to protect their organization’s future.
Participants will acquire the tools to identify and anticipate a broad set of risks—not only obvious ones that can be readily controlled but also unforeseen external forces such as pandemics, supply chain disruptions, financial crises, terrorism, and cybersecurity threats.
“There are no innocent bystanders when it comes to risk management. Just because you can’t predict a global pandemic doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared. A framework that breaks down macro vulnerabilities into risk factors you can control allows you to proactively manage the impact of events outside of your control,” says Randall Kroszner, Deputy Dean for Executive Programs and Norman R. Bobins Professor of Economics, Chicago Booth and HSD Faculty Director.
