Risk Management hard skills required

Hi to all, I am trying to break into the financial world and I have experience in IT but wouldn’t want to work as a software developer. I am pretty much interested in Finance and I study Master’s in Finance right now. It appears that the areas such as fundamental analysis / equity research and even portfolio management they require just a little of math or software skills. In contrast, quant roles and risk management need more math/statistics/software knowledge than others. The quant jobs are still mostly 99% coding, so not so much financial theory you need to know there. What about finacial risk management? It’s quite a broad definition, and the things you do on the job differ in various sides of the industry, but I am wondering if someone could share their experience on what academic knowledge and software skills you need every day to do your job?
