MSc in Insurance & Risk Management (GI)

Cass Business School at City, University of London

Developed by Cass Business School and the CII, the MSc in Insurance & Risk Management explores the growing relationship between insurance, risk management and financial services. The programme combines a practical approach with sound theory, providing the all-round skills and knowledge necessary for success in a competitive global business environment.

This course will help you understand how to identify, control and finance risk by combining insurance programmes, hedging strategies and techniques such as Alternative Risk Transfer (ART).

Holders of the CII Advanced Diploma in Insurance who have completed in the last 6 years, with at least 70% having been completed by direct CII examination, can apply to take a fast track route to completion, which offers exemptions from four of the compulsory eight core units.

For those not eligible for the fast track route, the MSc in Insurance & Risk Management may still be accessible dependent on an applicant's educational background. Please check the degree entry requirements on the Cass website for full details. Upon competition of the MSc, non-fast track students will receive up to 210 credits towards the Diploma/Advanced Diploma in Insurance and will be exempt from the core educational requirements (the 'Major Achievement' element) of the CII Felllowship should they wish to study for this after completing the Advanced Diploma.
