GCIE Focus: Lingnan University, Risk and Insurance Management (RIM) Programme

The Risk and Insurance Management (RIM) programme launched the second term of the 1999-2000 school year 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. Our graduates are well-prepared for managerial positions in insurance companies, banks, and related financial institutions. They work as insurance underwriters, claim officers, bankers, insurance product developers, insurance brokers, compliance officers, and risk managers.
