“The Business of Risk Management: A Prospective on Working in the Insurance Industry,” on Thursday, September 22, from 4-5 PM.

Every business decision involves risk and every business needs to find a cost-efficient way to manage its risks. There is a whole industry that provides support and great career opportunities, especially here in Iowa where risk management and insurance accounts for 11% of the state’s GDP. These are rewarding careers in which Tippie graduates can make a difference and help businesses and individuals stay out of trouble.

In this session, we will hear from Tippie alumni about industry trends, the changing risk landscape and how insurance helps address cyber and other new risk exposures, new technology and innovation in the industry, their stories and their advice on how to start a successful career in risk management.
