Risk Management, Insurance, & Financial Services / Actuarial Science

ABOUT THE RMI / AS PROGRAM

The University of Alabama has a proud heritage of teaching Risk Management and Insurance, having offered our first insurance course 100 years ago. In keeping with the accreditation requirements of AACSB International, as well as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, all students in the University’s Culverhouse College of Business take a diverse curriculum of Arts, Sciences, and Humanities, as well as a broad spectrum of business courses. Our minors pair well with a variety of majors, and we will work with you to establish a curriculum tailored to your goals. Beyond the classroom, our students attend a speaker series organized by our student organization (AIS), travel to conferences, engage in summer internships, participate in our annual Insurance Day (I-Day), and benefit from our extensive network of alums.

Risk management, insurance, & financial services (RMI)

Risk complicates business and life.  Every day companies and individuals are faced with potential losses caused by natural disasters, lawsuits, fire, and many other sources. Students in the Risk Management, Insurance, and Financial Services (RMI) minor learn to identify and manage risks. They are trained for careers in the insurance and financial services industries, as professional risk managers, and as knowledgeable consumers as they navigate the risks in their own lives. Culverhouse has been designated a Global Center of Insurance Excellence, ranking among the top schools in the world for students seeking a risk management career.

ACTUARIAL SCIENCE (AS)

Our minor program in Actuarial Science is designed to prepare you for career success. Whether you want to amplify your quantitative skills and expand your business curriculum or find a rewarding career that will allow you to satisfy your mathematical bent, we’ve got you covered. Building on the guidelines provided by the Society of Actuaries (SOA), we offer courses that prepare you for professional exams and fulfill the educational requirements to become a fully credentialed actuary.
