ULM’s Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) program received a $50,000 from AmWINS, Inc., the country’s largest wholesale insurance broker. The donation was handed to the program on Monday, in the presence of faculty and students.
Summer Ho, a current AmWINS intern, was among the many students who attended the event.
Ho, a RMI senior, said that AmWINS continues to encourage a familial environment , ongoing education and personal development. It welcomed her with open arms when she first began her internship at its Charlotte headquarters last summer.
AmWINS currently employs 30 graduates from the RMI program. The company also has a handful of current RMI students accepted as interns and employees starting this summer.
Along with providing job opportunities, AmWINS also has its employees attend RMI classes at ULM to talk about the company and help students with career paths.
AmWINS is a global specialty insurance distributor with annual premium placements of over $15.3 billion. Their services include brokerage, underwriting, group benefits and access to Lloyds of London.
