MET, one of India's leading B-Schools and the CII (Chartered Insurance Institute), London, a premier professional body for the global financial services profession, have come together to launch eMBA-Insurance - a programme that will sharpen students into global insurance professionals, equipped to meet any industry challenge.
The programme taps into the CII's wealth of insurance knowledge and rich experience, derived from its global presence. This, coupled with MET's experience of over 2 decades in delivering professional education that meets international standards, will make this a much sought after career option.
With a growth rate of 15-20%, the Indian Insurance Industry is poised for astronomical growth. The eMBA-Insurance programme will train professionals to add value to this industry, while capitalising on its amazing growth.
“Way back in 2005, MET recognised the need for highly skilled managerial professionals to service the rapidly growing insurance industry. With inputs from the best minds in the industry, we devised and launched a post graduate level programme in insurance and successfully placed our students in reputed companies in India and the international market, too. Today, the world has recognised the potential of Indian professional talent. Keeping this in mind, we thought the time was right to take professional education in the insurance category to the next level, by giving students the double advantage: Business acumen and strategic skills from our eMBA programme and world class technical inputs from the CII, London. The strategic tie up with the CII, London, will give our students the international edge and enable them to get enviable placement opportunities anywhere in the world,” says Mr. Chhagan Bhujbal, Chairman - MET.
The double edge
The programme for both, General and Life Insurance students, will entitle the students for a joint certification in e-empowered Management and Business Administration, with exclusive specialisation in the Insurance sector. They will also get an optional training in London, which will give them exposure to the international market.
The management and business module for the eMBA-Insurance programme has been developed by MET, whereas the technical contents have been designed by the CII, London. Together, these leading educational bodies will deliver an unrivalled specialised educational offering that blends technical, managerial and business skills.
The only world class programme of its kind in India
This is the first time that the CII, London, has entered into a collaboration of this kind outside the UK.
Designed to meet impeccable international standards, completion of the eMBA-Insurance programme will also result in the awarding of the 'Advanced Diploma in Insurance' by the CII, London. This will confer on students the globally recognised designation 'ACII' and the prestigious 'Chartered' status. Besides, students joining this programme will also be automatically enrolled for the first year as members of the CII, giving them access to a range of global services to propel them in their career.
Without a doubt, the insurance industry is eagerly awaiting the first global professionals from India to take it to greater heights.
