Center for Insurance & Risk Management

UCA’s Insurance & Risk Management program has provided the Insurance Industry with top talent and the program has consistently been nationally ranked in publications like Business Insurance, Best’s Review, and Risk Management magazines. UCA students are exposed to professional designations programs, like the University Associate Certified Insurance Counselor (UACIC), a collegiate version of the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation whereby students can earn two parts of the CIC curriculum through their UCA courses, and the Collegiate Studies for CPCU program – offered by the Institute for Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriters – which allows students to earn credit toward the CPCU designation through their collegiate insurance studies.
