Risk Management and Insurance

The Risk Management and Insurance program at ULM is one of only about 30 in the United States and one of even fewer that offers courses online. The curriculum has a unique emphasis on international and specialty insurance with its capstone course on surplus lines and reinsurance. Other courses cover a broad range of risk management and insurance topics including business risk management, commercial property/casualty, and employee benefits. Students can even earn credit towards their Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) Designation because of an agreement between ULM and the American Institute for CPCU.
