management and insurance focuses on helping people gain an understanding of the
insurance industry. People usually develop an understanding of the risk
management process through the decisions that will impact their daily lives.
The one-year anniversary of Super Storm Sandy throughout the East Coast is an
example of risk management that poses real concern for people affected by the
individuals, and companies are afforded the opportunity to develop and
implement critical-thinking skills to process risk management- and insurance-
related decisions for the purpose of minimizing, and/or eliminating, the
possibility of risk exposure due to catastrophic events (such as a major storm
management is a process that identifies loss exposure faced by individuals and
organizations; people will understand how to select the most appropriate
techniques for treating such loss exposures. Risk management and insurance
examines the financial aspects of personal and group life and health insurance
planning, homeowners insurance, auto insurance, other property and liability
insurance coverage’s, commercial property insurance, commercial liability
insurance, long-term care insurance, and Social Security benefits. People are
expected to learn various aspects of risk management applications.
Given the changes in the regulatory environment, the
common professional opportunities in the field of risk management exist for
agents/advisors to consult both individuals and organizations in various
critical areas of risk management, ranging from health care benefits to other
fringe benefits such as retirement planning, wealth planning, and estate
planning. Additionally, due to increase cost in other property and liability
insurance coverage for commercial property, managers of organizations are
looking for risk management consultants to give advice of the best way to
minimize and mitigate cost.
The significance of this discipline is the critical
need for agents and advisors to develop ethical and professional business
practices to service the ever increasing need for risk management and insurance.
