On May 31, 2001, St. John's University and The College of
Insurance (TCI) officially closed their merger agreement, making
many of the programs that had been offered at TCI a part of St.
John's Peter J. Tobin College of Business (TCB). Under the
agreement, the former TCI has been renamed the School of Risk
Management, Insurance, and Actuarial Science (SRM) and established
as a separate discipline within the Tobin College of Business.
For over one hundred years, SRM has been a leader in the
preparation of students for successful careers and leadership in
the diverse world of risk management, insurance and financial
services. Graduate and undergraduate degree programs are offered,
as are professional education programs, providing the
lifelong learning and continuing education necessary to remain
current in this highly competitive environment.
The concluded merger enables the Tobin College of Business to
expand its historically strong offerings in the field of business
into the critical area of risk management and to build executive
and professional education for the future.
In pooling the resources, reputations and success of these fine
institutions, the Tobin College of Business will offer exciting new
capabilities in lifelong learning for students of business practice
when viewed from any dimension.
