The 10 Largest Risk Management and Insurance Programs


These schools have formed some of the most successful undergraduate risk management and insurance (RMI) programs in the country. The following is a rundown of the top 10 schools ranked by the number of students who graduated during the 2011-2012 school year.

1. University of Georgia 148

UGA has consistently ranked high on this list with its ever-increasing RM I student population. In March, nine seniors in the program participated in UGA's inaugural Bermuda Insurance Market Study trip, where they learned about the Bermuda marketplace firsthand through funds provided by the newly established RM I International Fellows and Scholars Fund.

2. Temple University 140

A school that is regularly recognized in publications as one of the biggest and brightest in the nation, Temple nurtures its students to become leaders in their field. This year, the Spencer Educational Foundation selected 14 of Temple's students to receive scholarships - the most Temple, or any other school, has ever received from the foundation.

3. Illinois State University 125

This Midwestern RM I powerhouse enjoyed a 14% increase in graduating majors compared to last year. The school has also managed to stay on top of trends within the industry by adding an elective course in micro-insurance and sustainability to its insurance curriculum.

4. University of Wisconsin-Madison 93

UW-Madison is taking teaching risk management and insurance to a new, lower level. With funding from the Griffith Foundation, the university is training high school teachers to teach insurance to their students - helping to attract young people to an aging industry.

5. Appalachian State University 67

Graduating 14 more students this year as compared to last, App State continues its pattern of growth. For the third consecutive year, a student within the school's RMI program won the nationally competitive American Association of Managing General Agents White Paper Award, while another student was honored to become National Association of Professional Surplus Lines Offices' prestigious Joseph H. Blades memorial scholar, which includes an internship in London.

6. Ohio State University 60

The number of RMI majors almost doubled from last year. The school hopes to attract even more students as it splits the existing risk management and insurance major into two specializations: insurance specialization (in which students will have the option to take courses on property and liability insurance and employee benefits) and a risk management track within the school's finance specialization (in which students will be able to take courses in derivatives and global finance).
