The Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) Program at the University of Colorado Denver Business School was recently named as one of the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers’ (CIAB) Foundation for Agency Management Excellence (FAME) schools. With this designation, the RMI program at CU Denver is in elite company, with only eighteen other schools nationwide earning this recognition.

Additionally, the partnership allows CU Denver RMI students to have access to the highest levels of the major USA insurance companies for events, mentorships, jobs, and internships. As a FAME School, the CU Denver Business School will receive two $5,000 scholarships from CIAB each year for RMI students, one for a junior and the other for a senior.  These scholarships will be awarded based on academic performance and financial need.

In 1994, CIAB founded The Foundation for Agency Management Excellence (FAME), a 501(c)(3) charitable educational organization. They founded FAME to promote leadership and excellence in the agent/broker community through agency management education, training, and research.

Celebrating its 100th year in 2013, The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers is the premier association for the top regional, national and international commercial insurance and employee benefits intermediaries worldwide. Council members are market leaders who annually place 85 percent of U.S. commercial property/casualty insurance premiums and administer billions of dollars in employee benefits accounts. In 1994, CIAB founded the Foundation for Agency Management Excellence (FAME), a 501(c)(3) charitable educational organization, to promote leadership and excellence in the agent/broker community through agency management education, training, and research.  For more information about FAME scholarship program please visit their website at www.ciab.com/fame/.
