FEB UDINUS CONTINUES THE COOPERATION WITH AAMAI
"It is undeniable that insurance companies have a negative stigma. But since there is a direct supervision from Financial Service Authority (OJK), the negative stigma is fading. Insurance companies actually have a major impact for financial development in Indonesia, "said Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Business of Universitas Dian Nuswantoro (UDINUS), Prof. Vincent Didiek Wiet Aryanto MBA, Ph.D on Thursday, March 15th, 2018.
In order to change the negative stigma, Faculty of Economics and Business UDINUS in cooperation with Indonesian Insurance Management Experts Association (AAMAI) held a competence certification for its alumnus. The purpose is to make the graduates have a good management and marketing skills when they are working in the future. "For four years of cooperation, we have provided place for competence test (TUK) and we want to be a partner in providing competence certification for UDINUS graduates as well as for public. Nowadays, being a marketing insurance and manager must have a qualified certification, “Vincent said.
The lecturers will be targeted to have the certification first, so that later on, when they are teaching competence certification, they can teach based on the competence in the insurance company. "We want to facilitate education and corporate world because we see that there is a gap between them. AAMAI in facilitating the gap, has a very important contribution. While our contribution is providing graduates who are competent for the insurance world, "he explained.
