The Risk Institute

Dedicated to Education

The Risk Institute has given Gamma Iota Sigma a stable foundation and home base at The Ohio State University. Without The Risk Institute, Gamma Iota Sigma would not have an advocate on campus who is constantly providing new opportunities and encouragement.

Meeting the Need for Trained Risk Experts

We are committed to providing students with the curricular and educational resources to be successful risk practitioners and risk-aware business professionals.

Undergraduate and graduate students at Fisher have meaningful opportunities to benefit from and participate in The Risk Institute activities. In addition to learning directly from faculty involved with The Risk Institute, students may contribute to the research efforts and problem-solving pursuits of The Risk Institute members.

GAMMA IOTA SIGMA - Alpha Chapter

Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS) is an international professional fraternity organized to promote, encourage, and sustain student interest in insurance, risk management, and actuarial science as professions. As the newly re-chartered Alpha Chapter, GIS students are trained to have a well-rounded understanding of risk's threats and opportunities and are able to guide their future companies through them with capability and confidence.

For questions regarding membership, please contact President Aria Namdarian .

From experiential learning opportunities to conversations with risk practitioners, The Risk Institute was the highlight of my graduate business education at Fisher.
