Risk Management and Insurance Fraternity Members Assess Employment Prospects in Michigan Insurance Industry
July 7, 2017
A group of five Ferris State University students seeking degrees in Risk Management and Insurance and in Actuarial Science recently completed the “Michigan Insurance Employers Survey,” a measurement of career prospects in the insurance labor market, statewide.
All students are Gamma Iota Sigma members, which is the international fraternity for both study disciplines. Risk Management and Insurance Coordinator David Brown, co-advisor of the Upsilon chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma, said RMI students Faith Austin, of Marquette, and James Freid, of Lansing, were joined by AS students Alicia Bosman, of Holland; Laura Hureski, of Livonia; and Morgan Wiard, of Sturgis, in formulating objectives for the online survey, and analyzing the responses. During the 2017 annual convention for the Michigan Association of Insurance Agents, the survey team solicited potential survey respondents, by distributing letters in the exhibit hall, which provided the URL to the survey.
