Practical Education, Flexible Career, Rewarding Life
Everybody needs insurance, because everyone faces risk: individuals, businesses, governmental
units, and non-profit organizations. The range of careers includes underwriting, loss
control, claims investigation, risk management, actuarial, and insurance agents, as
well as finance, sales, marketing, and more in support of insurance companies. The
industry remains strong during economic downturns, and provides for a rewarding life
with competitive salaries and the opportunity to help people and businesses to avoid
disasters and rebuild lives when disasters are unavoidable.
The Risk Management and Insurance program thoroughly covers insurance law, risk management
principles, property and casualty insurance, employee benefits, personal insurance,
and insurance company operations. The program requires an internship to cement and
enhance classroom learning; students have recently interned at Auto-Owners Insurance
Company, EMC Insurance, and Farmers Insurance.
