"Financial risk management and mastering the unknown: identifying and transforming risks into opportunities.


Today, understanding risk management and governance is a critical part of any business, whatever its size. This is why risk management must be an integral part of corporate governance. Discover Sagora's financial risk management training course, designed for professionals wishing to master the essential tools and techniques for identifying, assessing and mitigating financial risks. Our short risk management training course aims to help participants become aware of the need to :

  • define the level of risk the company is prepared to take,
  • define your risk tolerance threshold,
  • identify the different types of risk (credit, market, liquidity, operational and strategic) and their causes
  • in order to implement appropriate risk management policies.

To this end, and on the basis of concrete cases, the emphasis is placed on the importance and necessity of involving all the company's staff (and sometimes also its customers and suppliers) in the detection, assessment and management of risk in order to enhance its efficiency and performance.


This risk management training programme is aimed primarily at professionals from a variety of sectors who are responsible for identifying, assessing and mitigating risk within their organisation. This could include business leaders, risk managers, project managers or business analysts looking to improve their risk management skills to better manage the complexities of their roles. You work in sectors such as finance, healthcare, manufacturing, IT or government, where risk management is critical to operational success and regulatory compliance.

Whatever your initial training or current role, you share the same motivation: the need to protect your organisation and its reputation, improve decision-making processes and contribute to long-term sustainability and resilience.

Teaching method

Our teaching method puts the participant at the heart of the learning process. It aims to empower our participants through rigorous, relevant and interactive training courses whose lessons are directly applicable, while cultivating a critical eye on the results of the figures processed by the learners. The Sagora method is therefore built around these key concepts:

  • AutonomyLearning by doing: Sagora actively encourages individual experimentation during training courses, enabling learners to become more autonomous. This makes it easier for participants to immediately apply the concepts taught in their professional field.

  • Relevance: Sagora offers pragmatic training courses that meet today's needs and requirements in terms of skills. This is made possible by the teaching consultants' experience in the professional world. The content and approach are subject to continuous improvement based on feedback from participants and current trends.
  • Interaction: Our approach encourages the sharing of real-life experiences, small-group discussions and practical exercises. This enables participants to take full advantage of the collective expertise present in the classroom and to benefit from an enriching and stimulating learning environment in which the teacher is accessible.
  • Applicability: Each concept taught is accompanied by concrete examples and practical applications, so that participants can immediately apply what they have learnt in training courses in their professional or private context.
  • Critical analysis:  Our participants learn to question available data, to interpret it in context and to formulate sound conclusions based on in-depth analysis in order to make informed decisions.
