Risk Management and Insurance

The Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Certificate program requires three courses (Principles of Insurance, Corporate Risk Management, and Life Insurance and Pensions) providing the students with a solid background in risk management, property and liability insurance, life and health insurance, government insurance, personal financial planning, and employee benefits.

Graduates with such knowledge find a variety of career opportunities in:

  • Underwriting
  • Marketing
  • Claims adjusting
  • Financial management of insurance companies

In other financial services businesses such as:

  • Investment companies and banks
  • Government insurance programs
  • Risk managers and risk analysts
  • Consultants/brokers/agents providing risk management/insurance/employee benefits counseling
  • Personal financial planners providing retirement planning, college planning, and estate planning services.

Note: Certificates are noted on the student's transcript, but they do not require the completion of a bachelor’s degree to be recorded. In addition, students receive a document to note the completion of the program. For further information, speak with a College of Business advisor.
