Since advanced technology continues to increase productivity as well as the potential for disaster, the need for risk management will continue to grow. Organizations now recognize risk management as an integral and effective tool for cost-containment. The profession will continue to gain recognition in the next decade, so salaries and career opportunities are expected to continue to escalate. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for financial managers (including risk managers) will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022. Competition for risk management positions is expected to be keen. Those with advanced degrees and certification will have better chances of securing work.
