The Department of Accounting, Finance, Insurance, and Risk Management (AFIRM) has produced it's Spring 2020 newsletter. All of us here want to share the newsletter's parting words "We want to end this newsletter by letting you know we are here for you. We realize the challenges we all face going through this difficult time. We also know that if we work together as a Sycamore Family, we can rise to any crisis. The faculty and staff want to applaud you in making this difficult transition. Your determination and dedication are a testament to your exemplary dedication. Please stay safe and well."
Where Hands-On Learning is Job One
As a premier undergraduate program in Insurance and Risk Management, we prepare our students for leadership roles in their professional careers. In fact, our program is a direct result of partnerships with those in the industry. Our students network with industry representatives through internships and real-world experience, and they are prepared to work as underwriters, risk analysts, consultants, brokers, claims adjusters, actuaries, or in other risk management or insurance professions.
The Scott College of Business’ Insurance and Risk Management Program began its path toward distinction in 1988. Through development of a rigorous curriculum, significant partnerships with industry leaders, and a strong commitment to experiential learning beyond the classroom, we have become nationally known as a premier undergraduate program.
We are proud of our nationally recognized Insurance and Risk Management Program. In addition, Networks Financial Institute has been named and recognized as an Indiana State University Program of Distinction.
Students who major in Insurance and Risk Management complete a comprehensive base of liberal studies and business courses, in addition to an exceptionally broad range of challenging course work in the professional area of insurance and risk management.
Our greatest bragging point? We have nearly 100 percent job placement of our majors, and more than half of our minors end up in insurance and risk management-related careers. [See Quick Facts]
This speaks volumes about our students and the experiences our program provides.
