SRM's diversifying into FE, Int'l Econ, and IM

SRM's broadening its academic position in risk to include Financial Engineering, International Economics and Investment Management. All three of these areas will have designated MS and MBA (specialization) degree concentration(s) when their respective programs are established. SRM's recruiter base in insurance and risk is pretty steep, considering that the school retains all the networked goodwill of the former College of Insurance. The new electives of the MRM appear to focus more on strategic decision-making in risk, while the more technical courses are concentrating a bit more on advanced concepts in insurance
