About us

The Department of Insurance currently offers a stimulating and rewarding undergraduate degree in Insurance at the B.Com. level and Insurance and Risk Management at the B.Com.(Hons) level.

Risk and insurance touches every aspect of daily life and business. When we wake up in the morning, we accept risk of potential injury to others and ourselves. When we operate our business, we encounter risks to our business property, reputation, and livelihood. Risk management and insurance is what allows our lives and the economy to operate smoothly in spite of the risks and the reality that “bad things” will occasionally happen. Risk management and insurance is what makes us complete when things go wrong in both our personal and business lives and ensures business continuity.

The Insurance and Risk Management programme is very popular with undergraduate students because it provides a solid foundation for the students’ future successful careers in various sectors of the economy. It is revised each year to ensure that it remains relevant and up-to-date with recent developments in the financial markets. It provides students with an excellent background with which to proceed to the MA in Insurance and Risk Management offered by the department or any other M.Sc., M.A. or M.B.A. programmes offered both locally and abroad.
