Risk Management, Master in Business Administration
A Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree is intended to provide broad business knowledge and prepares students for cross-functional decision making within an organization.
A risk/insurance specialization is earned by successfully completing an introductory course in the Management of Risk (RMI 601) and up to four (but no less than three) other RMI designated 600-level courses (or higher). This specialization allows students to build upon the program’s broad business education by providing an in-depth study of managing risk, or managing the finances of an insurance firm, or product design.
