Abstract: For a finite ring R with identity and a finite unital R-module V the set $ C(R;V) = \{ f:V \to V\vert f(\alpha v) = \alpha f(v)$ for all $ \alpha \in R,v \in V\} $ is the centralizer near-ring determined by R and V. Those rings R such that $ C(R;V)$ is a ring for every R-module V are characterized. Conditions are given under which $ C(R;V)$ is a semisimple ring. It is shown that if $ C(R;V)$ is a semisimple ring then $ C(R;V) = {\text{End}_R}(V)$.
