The Graduate Certificate of Insurance and Risk Management program equips those seeking a career in the insurance industry with the necessary knowledge to enter the industry and also meet the legislative requirements necessary for those working in the industry. The program also allows those currently working in the industry to consolidate and upgrade their knowledge.
Within the industry there are a wide range of areas in which careers can be developed. With Insurers this could be as an underwriter where you are analysing risks presented by insured's or in the management of claims. Careers can also be had with insurance brokers. An insurance broker is focused on establishing the client's needs and then developing an insurance program to meet those needs. Having done this they then market the program to insurers. A further career area is in risk management where you would form part of a company's risk management team. The team seeks to analyse the exposures faced by your company and devise strategies to minimise them or to meet the consequences should a loss develop.
