Insurance program honored

UNT was awarded the prestigious Global Centers of Insurance Excellence designation by the International Insurance Society for its outstanding risk management and insurance program. Only 29 institutions from around the world have received the designation.

The designation honors the world's top collegiate risk management and insurance programs that play an integral role in promoting insurance knowledge and research and advance the interests of the global insurance industry.

In addition to the designation, which is conferred for a five-year period, UNT will receive a complimentary one-year school membership to the International Insurance Society. The society provides UNT students, faculty and staff with networking opportunities and access to C-suite insurance executives, policymakers and scholars from around the world.
