The heightened instability of countries, regions, and financial markets in the world today demands a new way of looking at global challenges. It also requires a new kind of global leader – one who is able to predict, understand, and analyze risk in a rapidly changing and interconnected world.
To meet the growing demands of both the marketplace and candidates seeking to advance their understanding of global risk and uncertainty, Johns Hopkins SAIS offers a specialized Master of Arts in Global Risk (MAGR), a 13-month, cohort-based program at the SAIS Europe campus in Bologna, Italy.
The MAGR program is complimented by a series of events each autumn, organized by the Bologna Institute for Policy Research, the school's research division. The program begins with an annual keynote address in honor of Economist Robert A. Mundell, who in the 1960s worked at Johns Hopkins SAIS Europe on many of the theories that would contribute to his Nobel Prize in Economics 1999. The following three panels are each dedicated to a specific area of global risk at the forefront of the public policy debate.
