Centers and Research
As a prominent research institution, Robinson’s Department of Risk Management & Insurance produces and disseminates groundbreaking original research that brings a high degree of definition and clarity to the study of risk. The RMI department has one of the largest full-time faculties in the world dedicated to understanding, quantifying, and developing strategies for managing risks faced by individuals, organizations, and society.
The department houses two research centers – the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) and the Center for Risk Management and Insurance Research.
Center for Risk Management and Insurance Research
The Center for Risk Management and Insurance Research, established in 1959, sponsors and disseminates valuable applied research on risk and insurance to enhance public understanding and positively impact business decisions and public policy around these topics.
Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk
The Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) was launched in 2009 as a partnership between Robinson’s departments of Risk Management & Insurance, Finance, Accounting, and Economics as well as the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. When fully staffed and operational, CEAR will house more than 100 research associates globally. As a virtual organization headquartered in Atlanta, CEAR will conduct and promote research on the measurement and management of risk faced by individuals, households, institutions, and societies.
