FIN 5000.0 (48340)- Insurance Principles & Practice

Course Description:

The course will trace the lifecycle of an insurance product- from underwriting through subrogation and salvage. Explores the fundamental principles that must be understood by insurance professionals and business leaders in any industry, all of whom will encounter issues regarding the purchase and implementation of commercial insurance during their careers and often during critical moments in those careers. 

Consequently, this course will focus primarily on P&C and other commercial insurance lines rather than life, health, disability, annuities, etc. However, many of the principles considered in the course are often applicable across product lines. The course will employ the case method to explore and extract these principles from real-life fact patterns, some of which will be drawn from the pages of regional and national media.

This course is for anyone who wishes to gain a fundamental understanding of the insurance industry, the principles that drive it, and the multiple employment and entrpreneurial opportunities that it presents. In addition, the course will highlight the often hidden role that insurance plays in a wide range of important issues from international terrorism to child-protection procedures.

MKT 5000.0 (48176)- Special Topics in Marketing: Digital Marketing

Course Description:

While the world of "digital" is constantly changing, professional marketers are constantly trying to grasp how to strategically utilize digital tools to foster consumer community, limit crisis, and ultimately solidify brands in the consumer-empowered paradigm. This course will examine the shift of power from the boardroom to the living room through media such as blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and others with the goal of evaluating platforms against the organization's marketing goals and objectives. In addition, the course material will explore the overall connection of other digital platforms such as mobile, search engine and email. This course will provide not only a theoretical basis for evaluating engagement activities but also a practical experience of the tools used by professional marketers today.
