Insurance professionals who have achieved the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Advanced Diploma in Insurance can now be fast tracked onto the Coventry University Masters in Business Administration course.

In recognition of the skills and knowledge already assessed by the CII’s Advanced Diploma in Insurance, students who have achieved the professional body’s qualification that tests their enhanced understanding of insurance practices are granted advanced standing which recognises 120 postgraduate credits.

Those with the qualification will therefore only need to complete just two 15 credit modules and a 30 credit project. Those without the qualification meanwhile would need to complete all 180 credits to obtain the qualification.

Coventry University’s Master’s in Business Administration includes three key units examining leadership and management, global marketing and applied projects.

As well as being fast tracked, the first 100 ACII-qualified members to sign-up for Coventry University’s MBA in Business Administration, which is now open to registrations, will receive a £1,000 bursary on the cost of achieving the online postgraduate qualification.

At Coventry University, we are delighted to be working with the Chartered Insurance Institute. We have jointly created a pathway whereby the education and experience of Chartered Members can be applied for advanced standing on the Coventry MBA programme.

By adding a Masters of Business Administration qualification, CII Chartered Members can gain a broader business understanding which may not only aid in their day-to-day practice, but can also enhance their career prospects globally.

The CII is committed to delivering relevant learning, qualifications and assessments to enable insurance professionals to develop the skills and knowledge they need to improve the public’s financial resilience and further their own careers.

We are proud to be collaborating with Coventry University to enable insurance professionals to achieve a prestigious postgraduate qualification so they can excel in their roles and are able to adapt and leverage the future world of work and all it throws at them.
