Operations Manager,
graduated from AIA in 2016

For me, AIA was a perfect intro to the complex world of US insurance. The classes were structured in a fun and easily digestible way and filled with practical examples that really made understanding everything easy. I got the opportunity to learn from experts, but also to meet my future coworkers and hear about their experience in AIA and OIP. I always look back fondly on my time as a student in AIA and I feel that it was instrumental in setting me up for success in my career.

Thank you doesn’t adequately express my gratitude for the extraordinary experience during my AIA classes. I learned the basics of USA insurance through multiple fun activities like role-playing and interesting discussions. I loved when employees were sharing their AIA story and providing a window into the all opportunities that are available in OIP, we were inspired to go and do more. We learned what it means to invest in our own academic journey. Where I can sign up for another AIA round? – Miss my AIA days!

Milica Rajkovic

Insurance Solutions Specialist,
graduated from AIA in 2015

As someone who loves to learn new things and progress constantly, AIA was a fantastic experience! I really enjoyed the 2 months spent in AIA with the HoF, who had a response to literally every question we had, with my colleagues who were fun and helpful whenever needed, and with colleagues outside AIA who were always ready to teach us something new and makes us feel welcome. AIA reminded me of my University days and I would never be where I am now at OIP if I didn’t have the AIA experience.

Underwriting Assistant,
graduated from AIA in 2018

My biggest fear were Endorsements. You could say those were my Windmills. And now looking back, I would regret very much if I was not introduced to that task. Now, thanks to Endorsement Issuance I am familiar with the whole policy life cycle and policy issuance. I guess that there is nothing to be feared. It is only to be understood.

Ivana Mijajlovic

Team Lead,
graduated from AIA in 2015

I gained new knowledge and acquired very useful skills. All lectures were very useful since I didn’t have any previous knowledge of insurance. Also, IT lectures helped me a lot to improve my skills which proved to be very handy when I started working.

Marko Radulovic

Business Secretary,
graduated from AIA in 2015

AIA gave us theoretical knowledge of insurance concepts that we will be working on, as well as entry-level training in the most important client systems and tasks that the company performs. My colleagues in training were a talented, hard-working, cheerful crew, and the personal relationships and friendships we developed within the group lasted much longer than the training itself.

Marko Mihajlovic

Operations Manager,
graduated from AIA in 2017

AIA provides an excellent introduction to a whole new world of business activity which is usually completely unfamiliar to its attendees. It plants the seeds that take people down the path of becoming true insurance professionals, defines a framework for future development, and provides a great opportunity to meet new people and learn efficiently as the bulk of the training is being done by more experienced colleagues. Did I mention it’s great fun too?

Vanja Tomic

Team Lead,
graduated from AIA in 2015

When thinking back to when I attended AIA, I am sure it played an important role in building a solid basis for a career in Insurance after my graduation from the Faculty of Economics. The lectures are carefully structured and aimed not only at acquainting the employees with the Underwriting Assistant role but also at arousing a deep interest for the insurance industry by supplying a wide range of essential topics presented in an interesting and thorough way.
