The Brantley Risk & Insurance Center is excited to share a new program offering: the Risk Management and Insurance Minor. This course of study allows students the opportunity to learn about the numerous opportunities in the insurance industry with only 15 credit hours.
Insurance is a global industry that employs over 2.3 million people in the United States alone and boasts high job satisfaction and opportunities for rapid growth for young professionals. However, in recent years the number of graduates from the nation's RMI programs met only 10-15% of the industry's needs.
Potential careers in the industry span a variety of subjects and prospective fields of expertise including claims, underwriting, actuarial science, sales, customer services, brokerage, employee benefits, human resources, and information technology systems. Since there are so many career paths, there are also many different work environments. The potential work environments range from office, home, and field settings and can allow you to work hand-in-hand with customers or on individual assignments.
