Risk Management and Insurance Center at Olivet College ranked eighth largest in nation
May 01, 2009

The Risk Management and Insurance Center (RMIC) at Olivet College is the eighth largest program of its kind in the United States, according to the Business Insurance directory of largest undergraduate RMI programs. In a survey published April 13, the magazine ranked Olivet among universities such as Temple, Georgia, Georgia State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Florida State, Appalachian State, Illinois State and Wisconsin-Madison.

Were very proud of our insurance, risk management and financial planning students, and grateful to the insurance community for their scholarship support and guidance in our program, said Mike Hubbel, director of the RMIC. Student and industry involvement has helped to make our program what it is today, both in size and quality.

With 126 students majoring in the insurance field during the 2007-08 academic year, the RMIC continues to be one of the fastest growing academic programs at Olivet College. A financial planning major was recently added to the program, as well as a minor in insurance claims investigation. A Master of Business Administration in insurance was also recently approved by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Were delighted to rank so highly, especially among such large and prestigious universities, said Hubbel. But were aiming higher. We hope to reach a top five ranking within a few years.

The RMIC is frequently recognized by national insurance publications. In addition to Business Insurance, the center was recently featured in Risk Management Magazine for being one of the worlds best academic risk management programs.
