The insurance industry is in need of more education opportunities, says Alan Jay Kaufman, CEO of insurance brokerage Burns & Wilcox. "Few of the leading undergraduate and graduate business schools offer insurance-related coursework, which means that qualified students repeatedly choose other careers in business such as accounting, finance, banking or consulting," Kaufman says. For that reason, he says, Burns & Wilcox is offering courses and other education resources industrywide through its Kaufman Institute.
