Bachelor of Commerce with Honours in Insurance and Risk Management offered by the University of the Witwatersrand
The Bachelor of Commerce with Honours in the field of Business Sciences (Insurance and Risk Management) is a 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time degree.
The Discipline of Insurance and Risk Management is informed by the four key areas in which risk is manifest, namely the risk of loss or damage to property; injury, loss or death to people; illness; and living too long.Insurance and Risk Management teaches the theory of managing risk, short-term insurance, life insurance, retirement funding and medical insurance. Conceptually these areas are underpinned by the economic theory of risk and insurance, to which a substantial portion of the third year course is devoted. We build on this theory in our post-graduate courses.The division has a well-established research track record in various areas, particularly decision theory, the theory of taxation, insurance law and insurance policies.
