Objectives and Contextualisation

A correct risk management goes through the analysis of the same, its correct evaluation, in its reduction or cancellation, the correct valuation and its financing in case a mishap occurs.

In this subject, the necessary skills for a risk manager will be worked on so that, once incorporated into a company, he will develop his activities controlling the risks and being prepared for any setback.

For this, and based on the existing risks, the student will acquire the basic knowledge to:

  • Identify and evaluate the risks.
  • Know the preventive systems capable of organizing the human and material means to be able to face the risks that the developed activities entail and, should they occur, that the consequences and the period of involvement be the minimum.
  • Prevent them and protect themselves against risks in the most appropriate way.
  • Assess the possible consequences of a loss both direct and indirect.
  • Propose adequate financing systems to be able to face the possible contingencies that may arise. Know how you have to develop the investigation of the causes of an accident.


  • Be able to adapt to unexpected situations.
  • Carry out analyses of preventative measures in the area of security.
  • Generate innovative and competitive proposals in research and in professional activity developing curiosity and creativity.
  • Have a general understanding of basic knowledge in the area of prevention and integral safety and security.
  • Respond to problems applying knowledge to practice.
  • Use the capacity for analysis and synthesis to solve problems.
  • Work and learn autonomously.

It should be noted that due to the Online model, students will have to prepare the materials autonomously (documents, readings, videos, etc.) and the forums and Online sessions will be devoted to deepening on the topics discussed, as well as solving possible doubts

Tutorials with the faculty will be arranged by email.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Delivery of Continuous Evaluation Tests (PEC) (60%)

Throughout the course a total of 2 continuous assessment practices will be done:

It is a requirement to obtain at least a 3.5 out of 10 of the average mark of the 2 practices so that it averages with the rest of the notes of the subject and the grade is evaluable.

Final Test of Continuous Evaluation (40%)

It is a requirement to obtain at least a 3.5 out of 10 of the grade of the test to make it average with the rest of the notes of the subject and the grade is evaluable.

In case of not passing the subject according to the aforementioned criteria (continuous evaluation), a recovery test may be done on the date scheduled in the schedule, and it will cover the entire contents of the program.

To participate in the recovery the students must have been previously evaluated in a set of activities, the weight of which equals a minimum of two thirds of the total grade of the subject.

However, the qualification that will consist of the student's file is a maximum of 5-Approved.

Students who need to change an evaluation date must submit the request by filling in the document that you will find in the moodle space of Tutorial EPSI.
