The insurance program at the Katie School offers an excellent classroom education for students pursuing careers in insurance and financial services. This is complemented with outstanding experiences through on-campus opportunities to further develop our students through activities in the corporate sector.
The Katie School encourages students to attend industry conferences including:
These opportunities allow students to network with industry professionals, attend educational sessions and visit with industry providers about the latest products and services.
The students hone their business and social etiquette skills during the various professional and social gatherings during the meetings. Additionally, student officers in the Gamma Iota Sigma insurance fraternity attend the fraternity's President's Conference and the Annual International Management Conference each year. There they are able to interact with peers studying insurance and risk management at universities around the country.
Each year students visit Katie School Advisory Board Member Companies to learn more about career opportunities by job shadowing with industry professionals. The visit allows for a hands-on learning experience as well as insight into possible future careers.
