Ole Miss Risk Management and Insurance Program
Established in 1947, the Risk Management and Insurance program is one of sixteen U.S. based programs designated as a Global Center of Insurance Excellence. The demonstrable commitment to the education of our students is evidenced by the attraction of approximately 150 students from across the nation to our program, the placement of our students in meaningful industry positions and the recognition of our faculty at all levels. Employers continue to be drawn to the readiness of our students to enter the insurance industry both in terms of their knowledge and social skills. Substantial industry involvement in our program via our Insurance Advisory Board, our annual Insurance Symposium, biannual RMI Career Fairs, and the Ole Miss Insurance Classic golf tournament contributes greatly to the stability and success of the program.

Ole Miss RMI students benefit from summer internships
Twenty-five Ole Miss RMI students completed paid internships this summer in 12 states across the industry. In addition to gaining valuable experience, students earned up to 6 hours of credit for completing the summer internship. At the mid-point of their internships, students interviewed their supervisor and colleagues to learn what they should stop doing, keep doing, or start doing. At the end of their internships, students turned in a report that included a detailed analysis of their employer’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Employer feedback on our interns was unanimously positive.
