Tippie College) URL: http://www.biz.uiowa.edu/insurance/certificate.html The Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Certificate Program Business organizations succeed not only by their ability to create value, but also by protecting value. Traditionally, the finance curriculum has focused on value creation and not on value protection. The Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Certificate Program concentrates on value and asset protection, including pure insurance and risk management, as well as on corporate and financial risk management. The program of study is designed to promote the understanding of the many aspects of risk management and insurance. It addresses the financial and economic characteristics of potential exposures to loss faced by business organizations and individuals, and the techniques available for hedging risks and minimizing the costs associated with these exposures. As part of the Department of Finance, the RMI program provides students with a foundation for careers in corporate risk management, risk management consulting, employee benefits management and insurance consulting, insurance brokerage, and underwriting. Instructor Description The course is designed to enable the student to formalize risk management concepts and develop the ability to relate knowledge for personal and professional application. The course is basically divided into three major sections: 1) basics of risk management, insurance and risk; 2) health and benefit insurance, social insurance, life insurance and retirement; and 3) property and liability lines of insurance. The first section is devoted to understanding the concept of risk and risk management. The second and third section is the application of risk management through the various insurance vehicles. 1
