Insurance is extensively instrumental in guiding and regulating national legislation and the behaviour of individuals. Insurance as a science is also concerned with financial aspects on insurance system and risk management.

The objective of the basic studies in insurance is to give the central information about society, the research fields and theories of insurance. Personal and corporate insurance studies will acquaint with the theoretical principles of insurance and give an overall picture of different types of insurance schemes and companies in the field. Social insurance includes the Finnish insurance system, the principles applied to social insurance together with the main functions and the central benefits in the national and employment pension schemes as well as the sickness insurance and unemployment security systems.

Practical training has a significant role in insurance studies by joining theory to practice. Practical training system has been maintained for a long time and this has made it possible to create good and trustful relations towards the insurance field. Practical training also makes it smooth to find work after graduation.
