Saskatchewan Polytechnic is one of only nine colleges and universities in Canada to offer a dedicated Business Diploma - Insurance program, and the only one in Saskatchewan. 


About this Business Diploma - Insurance Degree

Insurance is big business in Canada. People, businesses, and organizations rely on insurance professionals to help manage risk and protect against loss. With more than 25 percent of the current workforce* expected to retire in the next few years, now is a great time to start a career in insurance.

Insurance brokers, appraisers, claims investigators and marketing representatives work closely with people and businesses. Insurance adjusters, underwriters, loss control specialists, risk managers, and actuaries work behind the scenes balancing the numbers.

In this second year specialty at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, you'll take courses in insurance against liability, insurance broker/agent skills, insurance on property, loss adjusting, relationship selling, commercial law, and underwriting.

When you graduate, you'll have written five of the 10 Insurance Institute of Canada exams necessary to earn your Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation. You can also apply to use your diploma for a head start in degree programs at the University of Regina's Paul J. Hill School of Business, Royal Roads University, University of Lethbridge or online degree programs at Athabasca University. Graduates of this specialty may also receive transfer credits towards the Certified in Management designation through the Canadian Institute of Management and the Certified Logistics Professional designation through the Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation.

There are more job openings than insurance specialty grads. You'll find your skills in demand in communities around the province. Work as an insurance broker/agent in a large firm or as an independent broker. Build a career as a claims adjuster, underwriter or appraiser for government or private insurance agencies.
