The Brantley Risk & Insurance Center Liberty Mutual Invitational was created in 2012 as a way to financially support the mission of the Brantley Risk & Insurance Center, while involving the insurance industry, alumni, faculty, staff and students in the Center's mission.
“Building Tomorrow’s Risk Management & Insurance Leaders”
Since 1988, the Brantley Risk & Insurance Center at Appalachian State University has been educating and preparing industry leaders. The Brantley Center is a privately-funded entity within the Walker College of Business that receives no state funding. The staff of the Brantley Center prepares the next generation of industry leaders by student interview guidance, resume production techniques and teaching networking and "soft skills" that complement the rigorous academic coursework. This intentional preparation sets AppState RMI students apart from other majors. AppState RMI majors make a commitment as students to become leaders within the Industry.
The RMI major at AppState prepares students for a wide variety of professions within the greater risk and insurance field including: General Management, Underwriting, Claims, Agency Sales & Operations, Brokerage, Surplus Lines, Employee Benefits, Risk Management, and Reinsurance Specialties.
