The insurance management certificate (IMC) will provide students a basic understanding of risk management, insurance operations, and the types of insurances available to manage the various hazard (insurable) risks faced by all organizations. The IMC may be used in combination with many majors to enhance a student’s career opportunities and gain a competitive advantage in the job market. Particularly students seeking or currently pursuing careers as construction professionals, project engineers, project managers, safety and health professionals, safety engineers, risk management professionals, loss control specialists, etc., may consider adding the IMC to their undergraduate degree plan.
IMC applications are accepted throughout the academic year, and the students start in the winter quarter. Both matriculated, and non-matriculated students interested in improving their career opportunities can obtain the IMC. For details about the application procedures, contact the SHM program director.
Students will receive the IMC 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 IMC coursework.
A minimum grade of “C-” is required in each of the courses used to satisfy the IMC.
