What makes our International Graduate Trainee Programme stand out, are our three central training modules in Munich and Princeton. They not only teach the trade from the ground up but come with an international assignment as well – a great way to gain experience abroad in global reinsurance. The programme prepares you for your career of choice in our core business – as a risk underwriter, actuary or claims manager – or trains you for a career in one of our central divisions, for example as a data scientist or financial analyst.
