Nearly half of the risk management and insurance workforce is expected to retire by 2030 and more than 2 million people employed in the industry.  But universities aren't graduating students quickly enough to fill those needs. This means that RMI Majors are in high demand!

What do you do with a degree in RMI? The primary areas we focus on at ULM are: Brokerage, Underwriting, Claims Adjusting, Ratemaking (Actuarial).

One of our favorite areas of the insurance business is surplus lines or "specialty insurance". We like to call it "the fun stuff".
