Risk Management & Insurance

Rethink Risk

The Davey Risk Management and Insurance curriculum was designed to develop students to confidently manage the upsides and downsides of risk. Our highly regarded faculty embraces a holistic view of the insurance industry and relies on strategic partnerships with professional societies and associations to provide opportunities for conference and event attendance, scholarships, and internships.

There is currently a high demand for graduates from insurance programs, and with 25% of the insurance workforce expected to retire by 2018, demand is only increasing. An RMI degree provides the perfect opportunity for enterprising graduates to carve their path to success in a field eager to find new talent.
