Student Testimonials

Elisa smiles at the camera wearing her graduation cap and gown

My experience in St. Joe's RMI program gave me the knowledge, skills and credibility to be able to land a job where I am the first college hire in a highly specialized Nuclear Energy Insurance Company. In just the first month at my new job, I quickly realized how complex the organization and the products are, but as overwhelming as it was, I also felt incredibly prepared. The Saint Joes RMI program gave me so much knowledge that I am able to keep up with seasoned underwriters and I have no doubt that the skills I have learned will only work to propel my growth in the future!"

The co-op program was a major factor in my decision to attend SJU. Because co-ops last four to six months, I knew that the experience would give me an advantage over other applicants when applying for jobs after graduation. With the exposure and skill set gained through the program, I earned my producer’s license before her senior year and accepted a competitive post-graduate position as an associate broker in the Philadelphia office of Aon, a multinational insurance corporation.

The RMI curriculum has provided me with exceptional technical skills through rigorous practical application. The industry-focused curriculum has allowed me to present case studies to industry executives both in the United States and internationally, allowing me to develop confidence and presentation skills. I have also been able to experience firsthand the operations of the Bermudan reinsurance market and attend countless industry conferences. I graduated from the program with an extensive global network of insurance professionals, including the leaders of the insurance industry's largest organizations. As I begin my career as an Actuarial Associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers, I feel that the RMI curriculum has strongly prepared me to handle the pace and demands of consulting."
