Bachelor of Science in Risk Management and Insurance

Program Overview

The Risk Management and Insurance major allows students to engage in a highly rewarding career. The program teaches students how to identify, analyze, and manage financial and operational risks that are inherent in both personal and business settings.

Risk Management and Insurance prepares students for employment in three major areas. The first is an insurance company career, working to create and service insurance products for individuals and businesses. The second is the risk management profession. The risk manager of a company anticipates possible losses and develops a plan to survive the risks. The third is insurance agency work, which involves selling and servicing of insurance products.

Students choosing to specialize risk management and insurance have the opportunity to sit for the Ohio property/casualty and/or life/health insurance license exams. 

Examples of risk management and insurance career opportunities include:

  • Loss control specialist/underwriter
  • Risk analyst/auditor
  • Claims adjuster/manager
  • Agency sales/service
  • Bank compliance officer
