Shape the future of the Insurance industry with our unique MSc in Insurance and Risk Management.

Our innovative MSc Insurance and Risk Management programme will give students the knowledge and skills that insurance professionals of the future will need.

The insurance industry is constantly changing. With advances in technology, an evolving risk landscape and a growing need for new insurance solutions in emerging markets, future insurance graduates will be required to have different skill sets to be able to respond to these challenges.

How will we ensure driverless cars? Smart houses or drones? Cyber insurance? How can micro-insurance help to close the insurance gap in emerging markets? How can Takaful be used to develop a sustainable society and protect the national economy?

This course will provide you with the skills needed to adapt to a changing risk landscape as well as current social, economic and political issues, within the context of insurance and risk management.

You will gain in-depth knowledge and understanding in underwriting and claims management, the core functions of the insurance profession.

You will develop your technical and soft skills in identifying, forecasting and managing risk to discover the importance and thought-provoking nature of the insurance industry.

Students will also gain knowledge and develop skills in quantitative modelling and actuarial pricing of insurance contracts as well as developing their leadership skills in managing insurance businesses.

Our graduates will become managers in insurance businesses and leaders in their field of expertise.
