MSRI Curriculum

The  30-credit hour Butler MSRI curriculum includes foundational risk and insurance courses in the areas of property and casualty as well as employee benefits, plus a series of MBA courses. Students in our program not only gain knowledge in risk and insurance, they acquire competencies in accounting, finance, and leadership, preparing them for all types of management positions. In addition to online courses, the program includes two required in-residence experiences that occur at the beginning and end of the program.

Each August, a new MSRI cohort will start the program on the beautiful Butler campus. During the multi-day experience, students will see Butler’s state-of-the-art facilities, participate in sessions led by nationally recognized faculty, and network with top executives from Indianapolis insurance firms. Through a Capstone Experience at the end of the program, students will have the opportunity to apply what they learned by solving a real-life business problem for a firm, and also network with some of the best insurance leaders in the world.
