Risk Management and Insurance, since 2013 (every semester)

BSc Business, Economics, and Social Sciences

This course is an introduction to risk and its management by individuals. We discuss how pooling of risk and insurance allow offloading of risk and reducing insolvencies. We then analyse how individuals make choices under uncertainty and their demand for insurance. Finally, we explore the impact of asymmetric information on insurance markets, under the themes of adverse selection and moral hazard. All these topics include discussions of recent developments in insurance markets and some advice for insurance purchase decisions.
