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.
