Are you seeking a fulfilling career that you can enter without a bachelor’s degree? If so, you should consider a career in the insurance industry. Insurance protects people and companies from financial loss due to unexpected events, so you can make a valuable difference to society in so many ways. You can work for large companies like GEICO, State Farm, The Hartford, Liberty Mutual, Farmer’s, Nationwide, and many other reputable companies or even start your own insurance agency. This program will prepare you for a wide variety of professions in the insurance industry.

The Risk Management and Insurance program can help prepare you for the AINS certification exams. The AINS (Associate of General Insurance) certification is a valuable, nationally recognized verification of your knowledge in general property and liability insurance.
