Risk Management and Insurance, B.B.A.

The Bachelor of Business Administration in Risk Management and Insurance is offered through Jones College of Business.

Insurance—many may be well acquainted with this subject if he or she has experienced the pangs and the panic of redesigning the front bumper of Dad's car. Insurance is one of those things we purchase and hope we never have to use. Most of us seldom pull the policy out of the file, but we're glad it's there or somewhere. To the average consumer, purchasing insurance is gaining peace of mind and financial security against the possibility of a catastrophic event. A student who studies insurance at MTSU will interact with industry professionals, have the opportunity to join an award-winning honorary insurance fraternity, and earn scholarships and internships. In addition to meeting the Jennings A. Jones College of Business requirements, a major in Risk Management and Insurance consists of 24 semester hours of finance and requires a minimum of 2.00 GPA. At least 50 percent of the required major hours must be taken in residence at MTSU. The program below includes a Business Administration minor. An alternate business minor may be chosen, but it may require total hours for graduation to exceed 120.
