Risk Management & Insurance
The Davey Risk Management and Insurance Program partners with the business and nonprofit communities to produce graduates with an ability to mitigate risk through a combination of insurance and non-insurance techniques. We seek to develop leaders with a holistic view of the insurance industry, who can plan and manage for the known, unknown and unknowable.
Graduates will begin careers in the insurance and financial services industry, as well as in risk management and employee benefits departments in large corporations, public entities and non-profit organizations.
- Graduates in risk management departments will typically be involved in identifying and analyzing risks which expose an entity to financial loss and in developing creative risk management programs to effectively manage those risks.
- Graduates in employee benefits departments will typically be involved in the design and administration of an entity's employee benefits; e.g., health insurance and retirement plans, which are used to recruit, retain and reward employees.
- Graduates in the insurance and financial services industry will fill key roles as underwriters, claim adjusters, loss control specialists, risk management consultants and insurance agents and brokers.
