After a several-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Appalachian State insurance students are finally able to return to traveling to London and Bermuda with the International Insurance Markets course. Led by Dr. David Marlett and Professor Austin Eggers, the London trip took place over spring break. Funded by the North Carolina Surplus Lines Association (NCSLA), students have had the chance to visit Lloyd's and visit numerous insurance organizations thus far like Acrisure, Gallagher, and Liberty Mutual Reinsurance. In early May, another group of students will have the opportunity to see the reinsurance markets first-hand while visiting Bermuda, a trip sponsored by Acrisure.
