Claire Fox

MS in Risk Management, 2013

Claire’s Master’s in Risk Management was the key to landing a new job in a completely different sector of the financial world.

“I acquired the breadth of knowledge that enabled me to move from risk management in banking to performing risk management for a private equity real estate fund – in a role I love. And I obtained my current position as Risk Manager at Harbour Fiduciary Services through another MSRM alumnus.”

Dante Disparte

MS in Risk Management, 2014

For Dante, the NYU Stern MSRM program opened the door to starting his own company, Risk Cooperative, a Washington, D.C.-based strategy, risk, and capital management firm focused on small and medium-sized enterprises.

“I felt the placement of insurable risks could be more rigorous and less simply transactional. For me, NYU Stern was an investment in the skills and general know-how I needed to accomplish what I saw as deficits. The faculty includes some of the preeminent thought leaders on risk, finance, and the global regulatory framework.”

Mohammed Al-Obaid

MS in Risk Management, 2015

Mohammed was fairly new in his position as head of risk management for Saudi Arabia’s Jadwa Investment when he entered NYU Stern’s Master’s in Risk Management program. During the course of the program, his skill set grew and his perspective broadened so that he returned to his new job with as astonishing level of mastery.

“Thanks to Stern, I have already gained by being ahead of the curve in risk management, as I now have the ability to manage risk from a broad systemic and strategic perspective with a focus on enterprise-wide risk management.”
