Olivarez College has recently launched the Institutional Risk Management Bureau (IRMB) as an outcome of the recently conducted Midyear Administrative Development Seminar that stressed on risk management skills presented by Dr. Gerry Kao, President of Manila Tytana Colleges and former Chancellor of the University of the Philippines.
Prior to the said launching, the administrators were clustered for focus group discussions on their forecasting to the institutional internal and external environment and from there, they derived the possible risks and the corresponding mitigation and intervention measures that ended with deliverables for group presentation.
