With either a marketing or communications major, you will be able to effectively navigate different cultures and communicate in a succinct and clear manner, which is a highly valuable skill.
                   Liberal Arts
A liberal arts background will allow you to think critically and ask the right questions to get the best results possible for your client. Your overall knowledge from your different coursework will ensure that you are able to analyze data and see small details.
               Political Science
With your background, you will be well-aware of major economic, social and cultural issues, which will help in your interactions with clients across the globe. Your knowledge and attention to detail will be critical in understanding policy wordings, and getting the best outcomes for your clients.

Meet Our Graduate Trainee Program Alumni

“The Marsh Graduate Trainee program is an excellent way to kick-start your career in insurance and risk management. I started in global placement, getting experience broking various insurance coverages for our clients. I then rotated onto the corporate practice where I was responsible for maintaining a book of international energy accounts. Marsh is full of experienced professionals that will give you mentoring and career coaching to advance you at a fast pace, and I have learned so much working for an industry leader like Marsh and its diverse amount of commercial clients.”
