Victoria University Program Advisory Board Holds First Meeting
Despite it being a cold wet Melbourne evening, senior people representing a very broad cross-section of the insurance community attended and provided very useful feedback and information on the direction they would like the course to take.
The emphasis of the course will focus on, as per the original strategy, strong technical insurance training. In fact, other than the research component where the student will be encouraged to complete a work or insurance industry-related topic, it will be possible for the student to study purely general insurance-related subjects.
The first students have enrolled with another 40 showing interest in the course, which starts in a few short weeks.
Having said this, it is not too late to enrol. To learn more please go to http://www.vu.edu.au/courses/graduate-certificate-in-insurance-law-and-practice-btip or contact me direct.
The University provides great flexibility and those wishing to do insurance electives as part of another degree such as law, an MBA or virtually any other can tap into the program.
I thank the Program Advisory Board members for their invaluable input and support and look forward to working with them to deliver a world class pos- graduate insurance degree.
