Course summary

Insurance and Sustainable Risk Management is leading the way in shaping the future of the insurance industry. The Masters in Insurance and Sustainable Risk Management from GCU London gives students the 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 insure driverless cars? Smart houses or drones? Cyber insurance? How can micro-insurance help to close the insurance gap in emerging markets? The insurance and risk management masters degree provide you with the knowledge and 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. Choose the Masters in Insurance and Sustainable Risk Management and take the next step in developing your technical and soft skills; identifying, forecasting and managing risk and discovering the importance and the thought-provoking nature of the insurance industry.

As a masters student at GCU London, you gain knowledge and develop skills on quantitative modelling and pricing insurance as well as developing leadership skills in managing insurance businesses. Our graduates will become managers in insurance businesses and leaders in their field of expertise.

Glasgow Caledonian University has over 30 years experience in teaching Risk Management and this new masters degree programme expands that knowledge to further specialise in Insurance Management. You will learn from teaching staff who are industry experts with extensive insurance and risk management industry experience.

Based in London, where Lloyds of London started ensuring risks more than 325 years ago from a coffee house, study with GCU London and access industry-led teaching and visits to leading insurance organisations.

Graduate opportunities

Upon successful completion of this masters degree, graduates will go on to a range of different insurance and risk management careers in a wide variety of fields including claims, underwriting, reinsurance, risk analysis and modelling.

There is currently a talent shortage both in the UK and the international insurance industry. With insurance professionals retiring and disruptive technologies and emerging markets changing the industry further, this talent shortage is expected to increase. Consequently, there is an urgent need for technically skilled insurance graduates to fill this gap worldwide.

Assessment methods

During the course your will be tested on subject knowledge, independent thought and creativity. This is done through a balance of coursework assessments and class tests and presentations, through individual as well as group work. There are no closed book exams on this programme.
