The Institute of Risk Management (IRM), the professional body focused on enterprise risk management, has sponsored one of Nottingham University Business School’s student prizes. This year, the winner was Scarlett Cureton who received her certificate from James Devlin, Dean of Nottingham University Business School. Cureton is studying a BSc (Hons) in Management, taking the risk modules as electives. 

“Risk management is important to both business and society, from learning how to frame questions with a view towards altering people’s perception of risk and their subsequent decisions through to learning how to secure your organisation from myriad IT and security risks,” stated Cureton in conversation with Risk Xtra. “Risk management is of increasing importance for all and has never been higher on the business agenda.”

Cureton is currently working towards a career in management consultancy with the intention of further specialising in the risk management field.

Ian Livsey, CEO of the IRM, added: “I’d like to congratulate Scarlett on her academic success. We have a long-standing relationship with the Nottingham University Business School and it’s great to see the risk managers of tomorrow progressing on their path towards a successful career.”

Livsey continued: “Risk management touches everyone who works in business and affects every department of the organisation. Risks can be both an opportunity and a threat and, in an increasingly volatile and uncertain world, risk management qualifications will arm the business leaders of today and tomorrow to make more informed decisions.”
