Collaborative Classroom Series - The Pandemic Origins of Risk Management

    Monday, April 26, 2021 at 6:00 PM until 7:00 PMEastern Daylight Time UTC -04:00

    People routinely engage in decisions, from the mundane to the life-changing, such as: Should I buy apples at the grocery store? Where should I go to college? Whether they know it or not, how they arrive at their decisions is rooted in the principles of risk management, which have been evolved throughout history. Risk management is humanity's way of combining objective and subjective information in an attempt to make predictions about the future. Sometimes it works in our favor, and sometimes it does not. One of the earliest advances in risk management came during an outbreak of a deadly disease, and much like the pandemic in our own time, continued to both challenge people and advance our understanding of risk and uncertainty.

    Join us for a collaborative virtual class and conversation with Prof. Trevor Tomko, Professor in the Department of Operation and Information Management. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss real life scenarios as we work through the origins and evolution of risk management.
