Earn the LLIF Designation

2019 LLI Path

The LLIF designation is an internationally recognized credential of financial services leadership. This academically rigorous, 19-credit curriculum provides industry-specific experiential education for high-potential, emerging, and senior leaders. LLIF programs enhance business acumen, broaden industry knowledge, and strengthen strategic thinking skills to help participants and their organizations excel. Earning the LLIF designation demonstrates a commitment to professional development — through gaining the cross-disciplinary skills critical to making the most meaningful impact in the leadership role.

Each program day represents one credit earned toward the designation. Participants must earn a minimum of 14 credits to attend the Capstone program — a prestigious experience designed by LIMRA and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. The Capstone weaves the coursework together and frames these teachings in a real-world context through experiential and practical application. In this five-day immersive, memorable program, Wharton faculty lead the group in addressing key leadership issues such as community building, leading change, critical thinking, leadership and followership, ethical decision-making, and organizational culture.


    ”For any corporate leader aspiring to advance their career in the life insurance industry, the LIMRA LLIF program is the most effective and relevant curriculum I’ve experienced. Each session is guided by some of the foremost thought leaders in the key functional areas essential to running a life insurance organization. Instructors and facilitators are experts in their respective fields of knowledge and guide you through an engaging process to learn and grow. Whether diving into the financials of a company, or developing innovative and creative marketing approaches, or learning how to ethically lead high-performing teams, you will be engaged and challenged all along the way. More importantly, you attend sessions with peers and leaders throughout the life insurance industry who may become additional resources and mentors to you for the remainder of your career.

    I feel better prepared to face the challenges of tomorrow and help in guiding my company through strategy discussions as a result of my experiences in the LIMRA LLIF program.“
