A Message from the Center Director
Within the next 15 years, more than half of current insurance professionals will retire from the industry, creating an immense need for a well-educated workforce. UNLV’s Kerestesi Center for Insurance and Risk Management is prepared to meet the industry’s and our students’ needs through our academic programs, industry partnerships, research, and professional development offerings.
I invite you to explore the website to learn more about the center and sign-up for our e-mail list to be the first to know about events and future programming.
