Our train-and-study programme offers a master’s degree and vocational training in one go for school-leavers ready to build their career both academically and on the job.
Combine theory and practise to accelerate your career in the fascinating world of reinsurance
This programme is designed to give you the best of two worlds condensed in just four and a half years – a master’s degree and vocational training – for a perfect start in the world of insurance. After two and a half years of vocational training, you take exams to acquire the Chamber of Commerce and Industry qualification. After the qualification, you work while preparing for your bachelor’s and obtain your bachelor’s degree after three years. The programme culminates with a Master of Science degree after just four and a half years.
During the vocational-training phase – the first two and a half years – we offer frequent training courses. For your vocational and scholastic training units, you join small project groups at the German Insurance Association for Vocational Training (Berufsbildungswerk der Deutschen Versicherungswirtschaft e.V.). As a result, you spend, for example three days per week at the company and two days at school.
After completing your vocational training and bachelor’s degree, you will go on a 6-month assignment abroad to gain valuable international experience.
Once you have returned from your assignment abroad, you alternate between the company and the university to study for your master’s thesis at several-months intervals. This allows you to work on your degree while you grow into taking on more responsibility and challenging projects on the job.
