Insurance
The insurance curriculum consists of approximately 50% arts and sciences courses, 35% core business administration courses and 15% insurance courses. The specialized courses in insurance are designed to give students the theoretical knowledge they need for careers in insurance and the practical skills necessary to gain employment in the insurance industry. The courses cover the nature of risk, life and health insurance, property and casualty insurance, risk management, and employee benefits. Insurance majors select finance and real estate courses as electives and complete two independent study projects.

CENTER FOR INSURANCE EDUCATION
Responding to the need of the insurance industry for more and better-educated employees, the insurance concentration and the Center for Insurance Education (CIE) were instituted in 1978 at the Howard University School of Business. Our primary objective is to provide a constant flow of well-qualified graduates for the multi career opportunities of the insurance industry.

CIE activities include: (1) recruiting new students from variety of sources; (2) providing students with opportunities for professional development; (3) recognizing the achievements of students; (4) awarding scholarships to deserving as well as needy students; and (5) raising funds for Center activities.

Center Opportunities
The Center administers and extensive employment interview and placement program for students who are registered with the CIE. As a result of direct requests by the Center to insurers and others, coupled with opportunities received from the many college-relations representatives for these companies, we engage in a long yearlong effort to find employment for our students. In this connection, we solicit the help of both the School of Business Center for Professional Development and the University Career Planning and Placement Service.

Degrees Offered: BBA
Major: Risk Management and Insurance
Curriculum: Risk Management and Insurance
Offers on-line courses: No
Miscellaneous comments: The success of any firm depends on its ability not only to create value for stockholders but also to protect such value. While the field of finance has historically paid significant attention to value creation, less has been said about the protection of value. Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) specifically address the issue of value protection. The Risk Management and Insurance curriculum focuses on the financial and economic characteristics of potential exposures to loss faced by firms and individuals, and the techniques available to minimize the costs associated with such exposures.

Increasingly, nonfinancial companies are recognizing the importance of enterprise-wide risk management and thus are turning to business schools for trained risk managers. There are also career opportunities in the various financial service industries such as insurance, banking, pensions, and investment management.
