Help people and businesses protect themselves from catastrophic losses by managing or anticipating risk with the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) with a risk management and insurance (RMI) concentration. This business program at Troy University can prepare you for producer, brokerage, underwriting, claims and risk management roles. Of our 2022 program graduates, 100% received offers for RMI jobs shortly after graduation — with average starting salaries exceeding $60,000 per year. TROY’s distinctive business degree will make you marketable and well-qualified for RMI jobs, helping you develop industry-specific knowledge in risk management and insurance and crucial skills for positioning businesses to succeed. You’ll learn how to manage risk within a global business framework and gain an understanding of risk management and insurance concepts for both commercial and personal insurance needs.
Even before you complete your business degree at TROY, you’ll have the opportunity to complete your state producer license in Alabama,
allowing you to sell insurance products in the state. Most TROY students earn their
state producer license in their second semester of the risk management degree program.
The risk management and insurance degree coursework is closely aligned with the Associate in Surplus Lines Insurance (ASLI) and Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) professional designations. You’ll be able to work toward these and other designations while pursuing your business degree at TROY.

Several TROY students have also continued on to law school after completing their B.S.B.A.
