- First in-service Executive Master of Insurance course at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich (LMU) starting in the 2007/2008 winter semester
- Overall programme coordination by the German Insurance Association for Vocational Training in Munich (Berufsbildungswerk der Versicherungswirtschaft – BWV)
- Munich Re and various primary insurance and reinsurance companies cooperating on the content and structure of the course
- Dr. Wolfgang Strassl, Board member at Munich Re responsible for human resources: "The Executive Master of Insurance course co-initiated by Munich Re creates ideal conditions for gaining further qualifications. By cooperating in the development of new courses, we can ensure that Munich Re has the right staff in its ranks in the long term."
This new master’s degree programme is a four-semester in-service course clearly focusing on insurance-business topics and addressing in particular institutional, financial and legal aspects. The Institute for Risk and Insurance Management at LMU’s Munich School of Management leads the programme, which it conceived in close cooperation with the Munich insurance industry. The new master’s degree programme has been able to recruit Prof. Andreas Richter as its academic director.
The Executive Master of Insurance course offers 15 young graduate professionals, with at least two years of experience in an insurance company or an insurance-related environment, the opportunity to gain a further qualification that is academically sound, industry-specific and thus also closely geared to the needs of the workplace. Four candidates from Munich Re will begin the programme in the 2007/2008 winter semester, with the company covering their tuition fees.
