Probability & Statistics for Risk Modeling

Probability & Statistics for Risk Modeling

Event Details


Risk is an inherent factor of any business venture. Management of risk is an oft-overlooked facet of business; effective risk management is essential because it leads to stability and predictability, more efficient use of limited resources, and a higher chance of success. Effective risk management is reliant upon quantification through risk analysis and modeling via the mathematics of probability and statistics. In this one-day training course, we will cover basic probability & statistics as they relate to business risk modeling. The power and flexibility of Monte Carlo simulation modeling will be highlighted, and we will see practical application with several case studies. The included outline is subject to minor changes.
