Best's Review


AM Best's Review, an industry publication with considerable influence, has ranked Eastern Kentucky University's Risk Management and Insurance Program #1, based on a survey of their readers.  The author, Tom Davis, titled the article "College Standouts: Survey Provides View of Top College Risk Management and Insurance Programs."

Davis states, "The 'can-do' appeal of the program helped make Eastern Kentucky the top vote-getter in the Best Review's 2022 survey of best collegiate RMI programs." Additionally, Davis says, "The EKU program was hailed for the real-world experiences provided to students, from offering a study abroad program and placing students in well-paying jobs and constructive internships to offering top-notch online instruction." 

While COVID provided challenges within higher education, EKU's RMI Program was a step ahead as one of the first colleges already offering a fully online RMI degree program.  Dr. Lisa Gardner (Director of the Risk Management & Insurance Program at EKU) said, "We try to make available to our online learners many of the experiences that our face-to-face students have."  Gardner added EKU's RMI program continues to to provide in-person learning experiences for students while maintaining COVID protocols.
