Insurance essentials conveys insurance management in a compact and practice-oriented way through topical seminars that can be flexibly tailored to your particular requirements. The seminars are conducted by experienced practitioners and researchers, which makes them ideal for an initial qualification just as much as for deepening insurance-specific knowledge.

Individual customisation possibilities

We maintain contacts with instructors from leading insurance companies and a network of German and international universities. This allows us to offer specialised seminars on a multitude of current relevant topics. We collect and evaluate your needs and requirements in a preparatory meeting. Following that, you can choose from a wide range of existing training modules and put together your individual qualification offer:

  • Insurance fundamentals – Operations, terminology, customer segments
  • Financial reporting in insurance under German GAAP (HGB), IFRS (IAS) and US-GAAP
  • Co-insurance and reinsurance
  • Investments and capital management
  • Balanced scorecard
  • Product development and pricing
  • Sales and sales control
  • Value based management
  • Insurance supervision

Our large network allows us to swiftly pick up new topics and integrate them into our training offers. The modular structure makes this compact seminar extremely versatile and the complexity can be adjusted to individual requirements. As and when required we offer separately bookable trainings and personal coaching for every module. At the end, every participant receives a detailed seminar documentation and suggestions for further readings. The practical approach of our instructors and the didactics geared towards discussions make for an effortless transfer of acquired knowledge to business practice.
