AIG has invested $4 million
in South Carolina's Clemson University to endow the Robert Benmosche Endowed Professorship in Risk Engineering and Systems Analytics, named after the company’s former president and chief executive officer. The endowed professorship will develop curriculum and educational programs in the field of risk engineering and analytics, cultivate scientific investigation and research, recruit faculty, and create technologies that advance the field.
The center also will expand AIG’s engineering capabilities and enhance the understanding of risk and ways to mitigate it. Its mission will be to create a next-generation workforce skilled in risk engineering and systems analytics, develop innovative technology-based tools to mitigate risk exposure, and facilitate the use of big data to make critical decisions.
