In the quest to provide certified insurance tutoring for Cameroonians, Skyhigh University Centre (SUC) Douala, has partnered with the West African Insurance Institute (WAII), Gambia.
Most mainstream higher institutions in Africa fail to integrate insurance programs into their overall educational frameworks. As a result, the majority Africa’s insurance market is significantly less advanced than the rest of the world, with a significantly low insurance penetration rate and Cameroon happens to be in this picture.
The African insurance market is significantly less advanced than the rest of the world, with a significantly low insurance penetration rate and Cameroon happens to be part of them.
With the numerous professional business institutions in Cameroon, it is still surprising that very few of them delight in offering insurance as part of their curriculum. Even worse, the country has no professional institutions dedicated to promoting insurance.
The Cameroon-based business engineering school, Skyhigh University which seeks to meet the needs of the fast-growing business world, took a step forward to partner with the West African Insurance Institute of The Gambia to realize this mission by offering accredited courses in insurance.
According to an official communique from SUC, these courses that will focus on training insurance experts in English, will be delivered at the Skyhigh University Centre in Douala. Upon completion of studies, successful candidates will be awarded WAII Certificates.
As of now, this partnership intends to offer the following certificates/diploma programs:
- Insurance Foundation Course (IFC) – 6 months intensive course for 50 students only.
- One Year Diploma Program in Insurance (12 months course) for 50 students only.
- HND in Insurance (18 months course) for 50 students only.
- MBA Insurance and Risk Management (16 months course) open for 25 students only.
To make studying at SUC comfortable and affordable to all, students will have the possibility to study online (during the day) and onsite (in the evening).
Such a partnership is expected to change the insurance industry in Cameroon that has for the past years, suffered a premature status. Africa’s insurance penetration rate is no doubt, going to increase as well.
Candidates interested in benefiting from this partnership can contact any of the institutions for more information.
