MSRI Overview

Now more than ever, companies are realizing the importance of risk management. And because the formal study of insurance is underdeveloped, professionals are having to “learn on the job” from senior-level management. Graduates of our online master’s degree in Risk and Insurance are highly desirable job candidates with the functional expertise to assess, minimize, and mitigate risk, plus the broad-based business skills to add value to any corporate team.
