Munich Re’s Top Talent Programme 2022
30 May to 8 July 2022

Advance, an exclusive six-week invitation-only programme for our most-valued clients, aims to boost business expertise, upskill leadership competences, and connect insurance industry managers. The business-school-oriented curriculum is open to just twelve participants each year. In 2022, our focus is on megatrends that will impact our sector already now and in the future.

Why Advance?

The selected candidates will get the opportunity to work on real industry challenges together with Munich Re experts and – last but not least – establish a strong and lasting (re)insurance network. 

The Advance programme is hosted by Torsten Jeworrek, Member of the Board of Management of Munich Reinsurance Company.
