The Risk Management Certificate (RMC) will provide in-depth knowledge needed to assess and respond to the numerous hazard (insurable) risks faced by all organizations. The RMC will help prepare students for exciting careers within their major, by helping the students build a strong foundation in the science of risk management. The RMC will help students gain practical skills to avoid, reduce, and manage risk, and to develop and implement a balanced hazard risk financing strategy using retention, transfer, and hybrid strategies.

Admission Requirements
RMC applications are accepted throughout the academic year, and the students typically start in the Spring quarter and can complete the program in just three quarters. Both matriculated, and non-matriculated students interested in improving their career opportunities can obtain the RMC. For details about the application procedures, contact the SHM Program Director Dr. Sathy Rajendran at

Graduation Requirements
Students will receive the RMC after completion of the requirements with a 2.0 (on a scale of 4.0) as a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) in the RMC coursework.

Program Requirements
A minimum grade of “C-” is required in each of the courses used to satisfy the RMC requirements.
