The Insurance Management Associate Programme (iMAP) is the flagship talent development programme of the Singapore insurance industry. It is designed to attract and groom top-tier graduate talent for specialist & leadership roles in this dynamic industry.
Launched in 2009, it is a structured and holistic 2-year fast track talent programme that offers our Management Associates (MAs) training opportunities (both in class as well as on-the-job) and tertiary level industry recognised professional qualifications, whilst gathering valuable work experience. At the end of the programme, MAs would also have obtained an international insurance qualification awarded by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), UK. There are three tracks under iMAP, viz General Insurance Underwriting, General Insurance Broking, or Reinsurance.
As part of the iMAP, MAs will be given a chance to participate in an International Insurance (Certification) Programme in London at the end of their second year, and given exposure to the workings of international insurance centres of excellence. Other components of the iMAP include cross-functional rotations, mentorship, skills-based courses, and online learning. The iMAP has been refreshed to include skills-based learning contents such as Developing Your Emotional Intelligence, Communicating With Confidence, Improving Your Listening Skills, Building Your Resilience, and Mindful Impactness. iMAP also provides structured post-programme career development with a view to leadership.
The Programme has placed some 284 graduate talent in 68 insurance/reinsurance/broking companies over 10 years, many of whom are today occupying key positions in underwriting, claims, broking, reinsurance and actuarial functions.
