UHart, UConn collab on insurtech courses

Hartford has recently upped its efforts at becoming a hub for insurance technology, and now two of the city’s colleges are working together to craft undergraduate and graduate insurtech curricula.

The University of Hartford’s Barney School of Business and UConn say they recently won a $50,000 grant from the Spencer Educational Foundation to develop an MBA-level insurtech course, that will debut at UConn in August. UHart students will be able to take the class at UConn’s downtown Hartford business school campus.

In 2019, both schools plan to launch their own undergraduate “insurtech concepts and applications” course. The University of Hartford said the course would be a part of its insurance and risk management major and minor programs within the business school.

In drafting curriculum, the two schools said they are working with Hartford’s recently launched StartupBootcamp accelerator.
