The Henry B. Tippie College of Business, in partnership with the Iowa insurance industry, established The Vaughan Institute of Risk Management and Insurance (2005) to help meet the rapidly expanding employment, education and research needs of the risk management and insurance (RMI) industry. The Institute offers undergraduate students a Certificate in Risk Management and Insurance. The purpose of the RMI Certificate Program is to prepare University of Iowa undergraduate students regardless of their chosen major for positions in risk management and/or insurance. 

The Certificate in Risk Management and Insurance provides students with a basic understanding of the many aspects of risk management and insurance (RMI), concentrating on value creation and asset protection—knowledge vital for careers in financial and credit analysis, corporate risk management, risk management consulting, employee benefits management and insurance consulting, insurance brokerage, and underwriting. It is the perfect complement to any undergraduate degree. RMI courses also help students better understand their personal risk exposures and possible risk management solutions (e.g., auto liability insurance, health insurance, retirement planning).
