Description

Insurance and Sustainable Risk Management is leading the way in shaping the future of the insurance industry. The Masters in Insurance and Sustainable Risk Management from GCU London gives students the skills that insurance professionals of the future will need.

The insurance industry is constantly changing. With advances in technology, an evolving risk landscape and a growing need for new insurance solutions in emerging markets, future insurance graduates will be required to have different skill sets to be able to respond to these challenges.

How will we insure driverless cars? Smart houses or drones? Cyber insurance? How can micro-insurance help to close the insurance gap in emerging markets? The insurance and risk management masters degree provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to adapt to a changing risk landscape as well as current social, economic and political issues, within the context of insurance and risk management.

Upon successful completion of this masters degree, graduates will go on to a range of different insurance and risk management careers in a wide variety of fields including claims, underwriting, reinsurance, risk analysis and modelling.

There is currently a talent shortage both in the UK and the international insurance industry.
