Add the Risk Management and Insurance Minor (RMIM) to your degree
Adding an RMI minor to your degree will give you an edge in the job market. “The capacity to manage risk, and with it, the appetite to take risk and make forward looking choices, are key elements of the strategy that drives the economic system forward.” (Peter Bernstein, Against the Gods) The RMI minor offers students of economics, math, actuarial science, physical sciences, engineering, architecture, arts and media and other academic disciplines the opportunity to learn how to analyze risks in their chosen professions, increasing their marketability and potential for success. The Risk Management and Insurance industry is incredibly diverse and hires talented individuals from nearly every major (including liberal arts). If you would like to develop the expertise to analyze the risk dimensions of your chosen field and create strategies to manage these risks, you may consider adding the RMI minor to your undergraduate degree plan.
