As a member of Munich Re’s US operations, we offer the financial strength and stability that comes with being part of the world’s preeminent insurance and reinsurance brand. Our risk experts work together to assemble the right mix of products and services to help our clients stay competitive – from traditional reinsurance coverages, to niche and specialty reinsurance and insurance products.
Munich Re’s Summer Leadership Development Program (SLDP) is an immersive 12-week internship designed to expose rising seniors to our industry-leading practices, as well as give them a jumpstart on applying for our fulltime Graduate Trainee Program.
SLDP interns are entrusted to work on real-time business activities and projects, and are treated as valued members of the Munich Re team. The internship provides foundational experiences in key insurance and/or reinsurance units (e.g. underwriting, risk management, claims, data, marketing, etc.) to build technical skills through engaging and meaningful project work. Interns also strengthen their professional and personal skills via meetings with executive leaders, networking with colleagues, involvement in volunteer opportunities, and conversations with their paired mentors. Hear from three of our past SLDP interns at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhCnDvWBKO4
SLDP interns will work from 1 of 4 possible locations: Princeton, NJ; New York City, NY; Philadelphia, PA; or Chicago, IL. While we consider interns’ location preferences, applicants should be open to all four cities as placement will ultimately depend on business need.
As an additional program benefit, all SLDP interns are also automatic advance applicants to the fulltime Munich Re International Graduate Trainee Program. This robust 2-year training program prepares new college graduates for roles in our re/insurance business via hands-on rotation work, classroom training, and industry exams.
