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 and 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 a broad spectrum of business courses. Our minors pair well with various 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 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 globally for students seeking a risk management career.
