About

The Risk Management Program from Mercyhurst University offers a unique business curriculum that equips students with the analytical and project management skills, communication abilities, and understanding of the laws and regulations that are essential for careers in risk management or insurance. 

Overview

All businesses and organizations face risk, possible future events and circumstances that can affect business goals. Risk Management is the essential business process through which organizations assess and mitigate risks in order to protect information and property resources and develop strategic business and financial plans. 

This Risk Management Program from Mercyhurst University also includes exposure to in-demand fields such as enterprise risk management and insurance, and it’s one of the few programs in the country to offer coursework in cyber risk management. Organizations in every industry need professionals skilled in risk management; with the insurance industry facing a talent shortage of 400,000 professionals, our grads are well positioned for excellent careers after graduation.

Career

Statistics suggest a shortage of insurance professionals over the next few years, as the number of insurance employees aged 55 and older has increased 74 percent over the past decade.

Risk management programs at colleges and universities across the country routinely report near 100 percent job placement rates.
