I am a commerce student, now in class XII. I want to make a career in the insurance sector. Where can I get insurance education?
The process of deregularisation has benefited the insurance sector immensely and a number of multinational companies have started operations in India. As a result, job opportunities in the insurance have also increased. There is scope to join the insurance stream right after class XII – you can do licentiate after school. But there are some courses which will require graduation.
The Insurance Institute of India is the premier institute in the field of insurance education. It has an expensive network of associated and affiliated institutes throughout India and abroad.
