Online Insurance & Risk Management Degrees and Careers

Insurance risk management involves analyzing data in order to assess risk to insurance companies. Insurance risk management professionals, or risk managers, assess all risks, including:

  • Natural disasters--including tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods
  • Car accident probability per client
  • Fires


Risk managers also investigate catastrophes and accidents in order to minimize the financial consequences to insurance companies. For instance, risk managers might suggest using building materials that best stand up to hurricanes. Prudent insurance risk management policies can save insurance companies millions or billions of dollars.

Education & Career Opportunities in Insurance Risk Management

Insurance risk management degree programs offer specific training that can prepare you for your career. Risk management degrees can also be earned through colleges' schools of finance, accounting, economics, or business administration.

Insurance risk management falls into the broader field of financial management. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), you need at least a bachelor's degree to enter the field, and many employers prefer those with masters' degrees. The BLS predicts an 8 percent increase in the number of financial management jobs between 2008 and 2018. Financial managers working for insurance companies, including those in insurance risk management, earned a median $54.17 per hour in 2009, said the BLS.
