Risk Management and Insurance Emphasis

The pervasive reality of risk affects all individuals and organizations. In the aftermath of recent financial and natural crises, the difference between success and failure increasingly depends on a firm’s ability to effectively manage risk to enhance firm value.

The Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) major provides a specific focus on insurance products and their use in mitigating risk in commercial and personal situations.  Graduates of this RMI program enjoy a 100% job placement rate (Spring 2015)

Careers in Risk Management and Insurance may include: 

  • Underwriter
  • Claims Adjuster
  • Sales Manager
  • Actuary Risk Manage
  •  Broker
  • Risk Consultant or Analyst.
