The Risk and Insurance Management (RIM) programme has been launched for over 10 years and is recognized by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF). Since 2016, the professional training of the curriculum has been further strengthened. The CII currently grants our programme an exemption of 130 credits towards its insurance qualifications. Our graduates are also qualified for the senior associate professional designation by the ANZIIF.
The programme equips students with fundamental knowledge of insurance, and risk management that meets the needs of the insurance and banking industry as well as the challenge of the changing business environment.
