Risk Management and Insurance Minor

Risk and risk management are topics that go beyond the business world. Being able to manage risk in a company or organization has become increasingly important over the last 20 years. Risk (and insuring against loss) affects nearly every profession.

This minor requires three courses that explore different aspects of risk management and insurance. You will choose two elective courses from other majors to broaden your application of risk management and insurance to other disciplines.
