School of Risk Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science

The School of Risk Management has a rich history and tradition. It was formed initially as the Insurance Society of New York in 1901, as the School of Insurance in 1947 and the College of Insurance (TCI) in 1962. The School of Risk Management evolved from the merger of the College of Insurance and St. John's University in 2001.

The academic programs of the School of Risk Management are located at 101 Astor Place. The campus also houses the Center for Professional Education for custom-made, non-degree training programs; the Ellen Thrower Center for Apprenticeship and Career Services; the Virtual Insurance Hall of Fame and the world famous Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library.

The School of Risk Management is a global leader in risk and insurance education and training and draws candidates from all regions of the world. All of the degree programs offered by the Tobin College of Business – thus by the School of Risk Management – are fully accredited by the AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
