MAIA offers a five-part Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS®) program in partnership with International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI®). The specialized MLIS curriculum focuses specifically on directors & officers (D&O) liability, employment practices liability (EPL), and fiduciary liability insurance. Management liability exposures and coverages are complex, and insurance generalists frequently make errors in designing programs for their clients. Completing the MLIS curriculum will ensure that the agent, broker, consultant, or in-house risk manager or insurance buyer understands the most important aspects of professional and management liability.
