Swiss Re Academies

We are always looking for new ways to allow Swiss Re employees to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with people and communities that can benefit. In partnership with Aiducation International, we offer one-week intensive programmes that introduce promising students, recent graduates, and young entrepreneurs in developing countries to employee volunteers from Swiss Re who act as their teachers and mentors.

The Swiss Re Academies help students develop their business acumen and prepare for the working world by building their own small-scale enterprises or landing good jobs. Swiss Re employees design and teach a one-week intensive course for students on site in Kenya or the Philippines and continue coaching them remotely afterward as needed. The Academies broaden the volunteers’ horizons as much as they do those of the students.
