The statistics are clear. There will be a significant shortage of qualified employees in the risk management and insurance industry in coming years. In response to that industry need, the University of Iowa's Tippie College of Business established the Vaughan Institute of Risk Management and Insurance to train the next generation of industry leaders.

The institute provides employers with direct access to the best and brightest students. Internships, networking receptions and luncheon, company visits, scholarships, mentorships, and other programs provide employers with one-on-one interaction with our students.

RMI students at Iowa are taking the course work to be knowledgeable and applicable in the field from day one. Their additional experiences, whether through internships or their involvement in their student organization, help them develop the leadership and communication skills that are so crucial for today's business world.

Employers can trust that the Vaughan Institute of Risk Management and Insurance is devoted to serving this vibrant and rewarding industry.
