While enrolled at Georgia State, Golub was granted the university’s 2015 Outstanding Risk Management and Insurance Graduate Student of the Year award. The Georgia State University Risk Management Foundation presented him with a Rising Champion Award at the 2017 Risk Science and Insurance Leadership Awards ceremony.​ Golub was also the first person to attain the CAS Institute’s Certified Specialist in Catastrophe Risk (CSCR) designation.
