MBA 520 SNHU CVS Pharmacy Company and Industry Risk Analysis

First, review the required textbook readings and the additional resources on risk management. Notice that there are specific strategies that a majority of companies employ in order to mitigate risk and address risk as it happens.

Next, select a specific company in a specific industry. (Hint: Think in terms of your final project. You can finish part of your research in this discussion if you use the company you have chosen for your final project.)

In your initial post, address the following:

  • What company and industry have you selected, and what are some of the risks that the company and industry are facing in the current economic and political environment? You need to research risks from current financial publications (e.g., Bloomberg, The Financial Times, The Economist). Note: For this assignment, a current publication is no older than four years. Quote your source.
  • Has the company addressed these risks? If yes, how? If not, what should they have done?
  • Is another competitor on the market facing the same risks, and how did they address them? Briefly summarize.

In your responses to your peers, provide feedback, including different examples related to the risks and their impacts on the specific industry or company. Comment on the similarities and differences in your peers’ responses compared to your own.

To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric document.
