ULM RMI for Industry 

The Insurance Industry Talent Gap

As an insurance professional, you know all too well that the industry is facing a significant and somewhat alarming talent crisis over the next 20 years. With half the work-force retiring in the next 10 - 15 years, you need a talent pool like ULM RMI graduates who are have completed the rigorous requirements of our program and are well-prepared to begin their RMI careers. They understand the long-term benefits of working in the RMI industry and are certain to be committed and driven employees.  They also have the knowledge and creativity that many of us admire in the millennial generation.

This page is dedicated to helping you (as RMI professionals) help us to recruit outstanding students and to prepare them to immediately add value to your organization.  We also answer  many of the most commonly asked questions we receive from RMI industry professionals.  Please contact our RMI Coordinator, Deja Peppers, peppers@ulm.edu if you have further questions.
