The university provides students with real-world experiences, such as study abroad, plus internships and part-time job opportunities within the industry.

  • In “Beyond the Classroom,” industry professionals offer their ideas about what college risk management and insurance programs could do to better prepare students for careers in these fields.

Also in the February issue:

  • Casualty Catastrophe,” looks at how insurers are headed toward a crisis after underpricing casualty risk for a decade.

  • In “Change in Diagnosis,” observers say the medical liability market is beginning to harden as higher jury awards, eroding tort reform sink in.

  • To change the industry’s image, managers must be open to hiring people who look different than them. Learn more in, “Beyond Looks.”

  • Gaining Insight,” examines how epigenetics can uncover how poor health habits can affect future wellness and is being viewed as a potentially powerful underwriting tool.
