The program was developed to provide interns with a valuable, rewarding experience and help connect the knowledge from academics with the reality of today’s insurance careers.
The first phase of a BNP internship includes an introduction to BNP and the W. R. Berkley Corporation including the historical path of our company.
General training about BNP’s product, distribution channel and company-specific business processes will lay the groundwork for an intern’s comprehensive learning experience. Technical training necessary to perform analysis and complete program projects will follow the general training. Sessions focused on developing innovation, creativity, risk taking and entrepreneurial drive will be held regularly for all program interns.
After completing the general training, interns will manage project responsibilities specific to Underwriting, Claims and Actuarial departments.
