GUST Insurance Track Gains First CII Accreditation in Kuwait
GUST's Insurance track has been accredited by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), making GUST the first university in Kuwait to be accredited by CII. Established in 1912, the CII is a professional body dedicated to building public trust in the insurance and financial planning profession by 'Securing and justifying the confidence of the public' in its members and the insurance sector as a whole, through setting standards of integrity, technical competence, and business capability.
Dr. Khaled Elmawazini, Head of Economics and Finance Department said, “GUST is the first Kuwaiti university accredited by CII, one of the most prestigious, globally recognized standard designation in the field of Insurance, founded in 1917. This accreditation allows our students to get exemptions for relevant exams and qualifications that can help them achieve CII qualifications faster than other students in Kuwait and Middle East.”
Prof. Jean-Paul Arnaout, Dean of the College of Business Administration, offered his warmest congratulations and expressed his sincere gratitude to Dr. Khaled Elmawazini and the Economics & Finance Department for this achievement. Prof. Jean-Paul noted, “At the CBA, we are always in a continuous improvement process, revising our curriculum when needed to equip our students with the skills needed by the industry. The CII accreditation is yet another recognition of our unceasing commitment to top-quality education.”
Other top universities accreditted by CII include University College London and University of Nottingham, while GUST and King Abdulaziz University are the only two universities in the GCC accredited by CII.
