"Not only did we just do the work provided in the textbook, we also went on a few field trips to see what a day in the life of an insurance professional and a risk manager looked like. This was very beneficial because we could interact with them and ask them any questions we had. We also had the opportunity to go to several Risk Management and Insurance conferences, in which we were able to learn about current events, network and ask professionals in their respective line of work questions. I am very grateful to have graduated and been a part of the Risk Management and Insurance program here at Ferris State University.” - Cody Simons, Class of 2017
