Our top-ranked Risk Management and Insurance Program started in 1965 and has grown to be the largest undergraduate program of its kind in the U.S. Our average graduating class numbers roughly 190, and those newly minted alumni are equipped to take a variety of positions in the industry, such as insurance adjusters and underwriters, insurance brokers and agents, actuaries, personal financial planners, as well as analysts in corporate risk management. We have a risk management emphasis in the Terry MBA program and we are home to one of the largest PhD programs in the U.S. producing future risk management and insurance professors.

The University of Georgia's Risk Management and Insurance Program emphasizes the importance of career placement for its students, making it a top priority. Each year, the department hosts its own Risk Management and Insurance Careers Day featuring a variety of industry employers looking to hire students for full-time and internship positions. The RMI Program maintains close connections to industry and its alumni through a variety of activities. Two student organizations invite speakers to their meetings and foster professional development of our students. The RMI Program hosts a very successful internship program that involves over 120 students each summer. Students can earn up to six hours of academic credit which counts toward their degree program.

We are proud to be housed in the oldest business school in the South, established in 1912, and to be part of America’s first state-chartered university. The Terry College of Business and its programs, including the RMI Program, are accredited through AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Terry holds the distinction of being continuously accredited since 1926. The University of Georgia was chartered in 1785.
