BSBA Global Business - Risk Management Insurance



The Sorrell College of Business is dedicated to helping you obtain the knowledge you need to become a valuable member of the global society.

The BSBA in Global Business - Risk Management and Insurance concentration highlights the importance of risk management within the context of a global business framework. It offers you an opportunity to obtain proficiency in risk management concepts and knowledge, particularly as they are applied to servicing commercial insurance needs in the excess and surplus lines (E&S) market. E&S Insurance provides risk transfer solutions for risks that are unique, distressed, or require large capacity. Professionals in the industry creatively design insurance products for some of the world’s largest risks. 

The Troy University RMI program is one of the few programs focused on the E&S market. Most other insurance programs offer a broad spectrum of courses with no particular area of emphasis. With the focus being on the E&S industry, students gain industry-specific knowledge that makes them more marketable and better qualified for jobs in this industry. With the coursework closely aligned with the ASLI and CPCU professional designations, students are able to demonstrate a greater degree of professionalism and competence than their peers graduating from other insurance programs. 

Graduates also find themselves very well prepared for careers working with the traditional personal and commercial lines of insurance in the admitted market. 

Troy University RMI graduates find themselves employed in cities such as New York, Chicago, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta and London. In addition, they have been placed closer to home in cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Tuscaloosa, and Troy!

Because our faculty members have real-world experience, course instruction focuses not only on vital concepts but also on practical application of these concepts. In addition, faculty members also possess real-world business connections that help students get jobs and build careers.
