|Description:||The Business – Insurance program prepares you for a dynamic career in the property and casualty (general) insurance industry in Canada. Offered in co–operation with the Insurance Institute of Canada (IIC), this program is anchored on the fundamental aspects of both business and insurance and was designed with experts from several national insurance firms. Your courses focus specifically on brokerage, underwriting and claims, where career prospects are extremely strong. As a graduate, you will have had the opportunity to earn eight credits toward the internationally recognized Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation.
Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional co-op work term(s) in a formal work environment. In most cases the work term(s) is a full-time paid position completed between two academic semesters. In programs with limited co-op opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional co-op stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
