The insurance industry is changing, and colleges aren't keeping up.

About the IPDP

Drones. Hackers. Self-driving cars. The future is filled with risks that traditional insurance providers simply aren't equipped for. That's where young professionals like you come in. With a generation of insurance producers nearing retirement, the time is ripe for young people to take charge.

But colleges and universities across the United States don't teach the skills you need to be successful in insurance. Few graduates are even aware of the opportunities available to them in insurance.
