Employers say they value our graduates for their strong analytic skills and for their ability to apply those skills in real business applications. We develop those capabilities in our students through an extensive internship program that typically involves more than 100 students and as many as 80 companies, as well as through applied group and individual projects in the classroom. Terry students are in such demand that the RMI department can require that internships be paid. This typically results in our students being asked to do real work on their internship assignments, where they learn critical professional skills before they even graduate.
Terry’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 & Insurance Careers Day featuring a variety of industry employers (typically more than 50 companies) looking to hire students for full-time and internship positions.
