THE ST. JOHN'S UNIVERSITY TOBIN CENTER FOR EXECUTIVE EDUCATION LAUNCHES "UNDERWRITING WHEN MARKET CYCLES CHANGE"

in Live, Virtual, Instructor-led Format

 Recognizing that Property/Casualty insurers have entered a rapidly escalating hard-market cycle, the Tobin Center for Executive Education at St. John's University’s Peter J. Tobin College of Business is relaunching our perennially popular program "Underwriting When Market Cycles Change" in a live, virtual, instructor-led format.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the course are to:

  • enhance participants' understanding of the characteristics of a hard market cycle,
  • provide insights on negotiating during a hard market, and
  • understand behaviors that help enhance underwriting profitability, or, conversely, that lead to failing.

PROGRAM CONTENT

The six key areas addressed in the seminar are:

  • Characteristics of Commercial P&C Markets in economic terms
  • Indicators of Market Change
  • The role of the underwriter during changing markets
  • Developing a "hard market" plan with your manager
  • Understanding insurer profitability
  • Why insurance companies fail

STRUCTURE OF PROGRAM

Structured in cohorts, each program consists of three live 90-minute sessions, with an optional fourth 90-minute session, as follows:

  • The first 90-minute session, "The Insurance Market Cycle" explores characteristics of P&C markets and indicators of market change.
  • The second 90-minute session, "The Impact on Underwriting," explores the role of the underwriter and developing a hard market plan.
  • The third 90-minute session,"Insurer Profitability and Causes of Failure" provides insights into insurer profitability and why insurance companies fail.
  • Optional fourth session,for individual companies enrolling a cohort of employees, the program can include examination/discussion of a company-specific balance sheet and income statement or a company-specific case study. This would require a fourth session (an additional 90 minutes).

SCHEDULING

Scheduling can flexible, depending on the needs of the company and its employees.  For example, the 90-minute sessions, if spaced over three days, will allow participants to plan their regular working hours around scheduled sessions. 

COST

Each 90-minute session costs $75, for a basic cost of $225 per participant for the three sessions. With an additional (optional) fourth session, the charge would be $300 per participant. Contact us to discuss pricing options for cohorts or groups.
