Insurance Concentration

Unlike the extensive insurance programs at other schools that are limited to business students, Drake’s insurance concentration is open to, and attracts, students from throughout the University regardless of their major. For the most part, with their own extensive training programs, insurance companies do not seek college students with an in-depth insurance education. Rather companies seek bright students who, regardless of their major, have a basic knowledge of the concepts and efficient uses of insurance and are interested in discussing opportunities for employment in the industry. Growing demand for Drake graduates from the insurance industry reflects the program’s preparation for initial employment in the industry.

Students can earn the concentration by completing three courses with a GPA of 2.0 or above:

  • Insurance 051—Personal Risk Management
  • Insurance 141—Business Risk Management
  • Insurance 161—Insurance Company Operations
