Master in Insurance & Risk Management

The Master in Insurance & Risk Management – MIRM has been conceived and developed with the direct support of company leaders in Insurance, Finance and Consulting sectors, contributing to its realization in all phases, from selection of candidates to defining the curriculum and job placement. The MIRM is a stimulating and complete training path (full-time, 12 months), providing the managerial and technical competencies to advance the career in insurance, risk management, consulting and financial services. In today’s market conditions, characterised by global competition, Companies face many challenges and chances for growth. They have now to design and introduce into the market products that offer something new. They have also to develop alternative distribution channels, ensure ever-higher standards of service for their customers and create a more effective means of communication. Due also to the present crisis, new important opportunities have arisen in the Risk Management sector: today all companies need to acquire skills and to elaborate suitable tools to foresee, analyze and manage risk. The Master in Insurance & Risk Management represents an effective response to these new requirements for specific competences and, above all, managerial skills.

Evidences of programme’s value and dependability are the accreditations earned both at national and international level.

Patronage by: » IRSA (Institute for the Research and Development of Insurance) » AIDA (International Association of Insurance Law) » ARIMAS (Academic Risk Management Association) » ANIA (National Association of Insurance Companies) » CINEAS (Academic Consortium for Engineering in Insurance) The excellence and variety of corporate and institutional network offer excellent opportunities for contacts, placement and professional growth.

The constant integration between specialised knowledge and a managerial vision of business is one of the distinguishing features of MIRM, which fits in midway between a Master of Science (M.Sc.) and an MBA program. Our aim is to train individuals able to use effectively insurance techniques and instruments of risk management from the standpoint of overall business management and development. Motivation, involvement and leadership are blended in the training process with skills, techniques and ability. It is a fascinating, brilliant experience, helping young professionals with a global vision to launch a fulfilling and international career.
