The Insurance industry employs many people in a variety of functional jobs, including those in accounting, finance, information systems, advertising, sales and sales management, and operations.   

Risk management is conducted by specially trained professionals who identify and strategically manage the risks inherent in doing business in a variety of different industries (e.g., financial services, health care, entertainment, manufacturing, construction, etc).

The insurance industry and the risk management profession help people and businesses flourish by managing the risks that stifle business and personal growth. 

The insurance industry and risk management profession in Ohio and across the nation has many job openings and a significant need to hire talented people to become the next generation of leaders in many of the country‚Äôs top-rated companies.   

To respond to this need, the Finance Department in the Carl H. Lindner College of Business offers an undergraduate major and minor in Insurance and Risk Management (IRM).  Graduate certificates in Risk Managment and Financial Planning are currently being developed.
