Introduction

Please click here  to see Business School information.

The risk management and insurance area of emphasis in the finance area of emphasis provides students with the fundamental knowledge needed to accurately measure and manage risk.

Recent crisis situations suggest that understanding risk and how to manage it, and ultimately, how risk management can be used to increase firm value, is essential in the current business environment. The RMI emphasis will provide an overall perspective on risk, with a specific focus on insurance products and their use in mitigating risk in business and personal situations. The insurance industry recognizes many high-level certifications as a sign of expertise, and the RMI course work will provide the knowledge base so that students can proceed to acquire certification in their specific choice of insurance specialty.

Potential job opportunities include positions in the insurance industry and those that require a thorough understanding of risk, such as corporate risk officer or risk manager. In addition, students who choose to work in the insurance industry can make a seamless transition into underwriting, ratemaking, and policy approval. The program will be supported by unique internship and special project opportunities in the insurance industry, and is the first program of its kind in the region.
