What Will I Get from the programme?
Our graduate programme is based on 3 pillars
Industry Deep Dives
But we also make
sure you get practical
Throughout the graduate programme, you will work on a relevant and complex project, solving a real problem for a real client. We call this your Action Learning Project, because we believe - no, we know -that there is no learning without action.
Health Warning: The graduate programme will take a LOT out of you. Unlike varsity, where you only have a few lectures a day, we will expect you to put in a hard days work, day in and day out. But the reward is worth it – becoming a member of the Riskworx family – a nerdy but crazy bunch of mavericks who are the best in the business, but never stop having fun.
