Innovate While Driving Change

Insurers that effectively leverage data analytics stand out in today’s competitive marketplace. More life insurers are hiring data scientists or re-tasking current employees to find data solutions to business challenges. But, to effectively innovate and drive change, these data experts need industry knowledge and a holistic view of insurance operations.


In this program, data experts quickly learn about insurance products, operations, and how companies make money. This business context empowers them to apply their analytical skills and statistical expertise in practical ways.

Insurance Immersion for Data Scientists includes content developed specifically for data scientists, delivered by expert instructors. The program provides foundational knowledge about the business of insurance, focusing on how participants can apply their analytical expertise in this unique environment.

  • The evolution of analytics in insurance
  • Overview of life insurance and retirement industries
  • How insurance companies make money
  • Distribution fundamentals and disruption
  • Life insurance products and annuities
  • Overview of underwriting and claims functions

I enjoyed learning with other data scientists and learning what they do and obstacles they have. [We] need to understand the life insurance environment so that we know what’s important to business.

[This experience] will undoubtedly help me be more effective. Just knowing more about insurance/annuities can help with communication with different teams and less time learning for new projects.
