Indiana State University offers individuals a unique opportunity to earn a bachelor of science in insurance and risk management. ISU is one of only 36 universities in North America to offer a bachelor of science degree in insurance and risk management, and only one of four such universities to offer 11 or more undergraduate courses in insurance or risk management.

Coursework includes a foundation of liberal studies and a core of business courses, combined with a concentration of nine courses in insurance and risk management.

The faculty includes three full-time professors, each who hold a doctorate and professional designations or industry experience. The Insurance and Risk Management Program has been developed in conjunction with the Insurance Advisory Council composed of industry leaders. Since 1988, the industry has invested in excess of $1,800,000 in ISU’s program, including professional development for students and faculty, faculty research, and program development and operation.

In 1998, Donald F. and Patricia Gongaware endowed The Gongaware Center for Insurance Management Development, which adds exciting possibilities for scholarships, internships, and networking with industry leaders. This leadership and guidance from industry ensures a real-world education that prepares graduates for careers in the financial services industry.
