Global pandemics, climate change, cybersecurity attacks, economic uncertainties, the need to innovate, and increasing business complexities all pose risks that need to be effectively managed. All organizations, including large multinational corporations, medium and small businesses, and governmental and not-for-profit organizations need people who understand risk management and insurance. Being able to respond strategically to growing risks is increasingly valuable within organizations. Insurance organizations help individuals, businesses and other organizations identify, manage and mitigate their risks. For those who study risk management and insurance, there are a broad range of career opportunities within insurance organizations, as well as with businesses across a wide-range of industries. Given the attention that is being given to the importance of addressing and managing risks, there may never be a better time to study risk management and insurance than today.
