Programme Overview

The University of Lusaka was the first institution to offer an Insurance and Pension Management programme at degree level. Over the years, this degree programme has continued to produce exceptional students who have excelled in the corporate world.

Ultimately, this course is tailor-made to cater for students who are passionate about regulating pension schemes and insurance services. The programme incorporates both theoretical and practical knowledge that enables students to ‘hit the ground running’ after graduating.

This is a highly specialised course in business management that concentrates on the intricacies of the Insurance and Pension Management Sector. It prepares individuals to manage risk in organisational settings and provide insurance and risk-aversion services to businesses, individuals and other organisations.
It also prepares graduates to plan and manage pension funds and social security schemes for wealth-creation since the industry is endowed with huge funds.

As Zambia embraces market economics and foreign direct investments, the onus is on the entrepreneurs to manage risk and also manage pensions of their employees. This course is suited for both specialisations. The graduates taking the course will be able to manage risk undertaken by an insurance company or pension fund.
