Northeast Indiana is home to a thriving business sector called Risk Management & Insurance. The University of Saint Francis is the first and only college in northern Indiana to offer a bachelor-level degree in the field. This field offers a wide range of exciting, well-paying career options, and students often start their careers right out of college.
The RMI program includes a focus on real-world experience and project-based learning. Students studying RMI at USF benefit from project-based and experience-driven learning. Learn today the same way you’ll work tomorrow. Industry leaders are collaborating with USF on curriculum, and will teach classes, grant internships and mentor our students!
The insurance sector is a target industry for economic growth for both the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and Greater Fort Wayne Inc. Many industry leaders joined forces with education and economic development leaders to form NISI, the Northeast Indiana Specialty Insurers cluster. Not just jobs — great jobs.
Careers in the field include risk management consultants, claims adjusters and investigators, underwriters and loss control specialists, sales consultants and customer service professionals. Wages in the RMI industry are above average — over $63,000! And as many baby boomers are nearing retirement, USF students will likely benefit from many job openings in coming years.
