Vision

 

We believe that cross-border learning is the key to creating impact within the Partner organisations: by impact we refer to turning theory and key learnings into initiatives and actions that improve results and customer value.

Mission

 

The mission of the Academy is to be a trustworthy  international platform that enables people to continuously develop and learn from each other.

Strategy

Cross-border learning

  • Leveraging the knowledge that is already present at the Partners and identifying thought leaders.
  • Leveraging the diversity within the Alliance.
  • Innovating together: the more people are involved in similar innovative practices the faster it leads to results.

Acting on real
business needs

  • Organising programmes together with the business. 
  • Cooperating with Partner’s academies. 
  • Tailor-made programmes.

Creating and

Continuous change = continuous learning

  • Keeping up to date with the constant industry changes. The Eurapco Academy identifies these changes in conjunction with the business and develops tailor-made learning programmes if and as long as there is a need for it.

Cost
efficiency

Our History

In 1992, the Eureko Board aimed to enhance leadership understanding of the market and industry trends. The first Executive Programme launched in May 1993 with INSEAD Business School. Later collaborations included Ashridge Business School (2003), Business School St. Gallen (2012), and London Business School (2018).

The Eureko Academy, established on July 25, 1994, fostered know-how exchange.  A management exchange program facilitated experience transfer within the alliance.

The Eurekans Programme for high-potential managers stemmed from the Executive Programme. In 2012, the Leadership Experience began, focusing on strategy, leadership, and transformation.

In 2012, the Eureko Academy became the Achmea Academy, still delivering leadership programs for Eurapco.

In 2016, the Eurapco Academy was formed, and specialist programmes were introduced, starting with the Actuary Programme.

In 2016, the first Leadership Alumni Event occurred, addressing participants’ desire to maintain the Ashridge experience. The Learning Leaders network was launched in 2018, fostering collaboration among Eurapco Partner academies.

In recent years, specialist programs like Claims, Cyber Risk, Underwriters, Data Science, and Design Thinking were introduced. Investing in dedicated, motivated, and well-trained employees cultivates a high-performance culture.

The Eurapco culture reflects its Partners’ geographic and cultural diversity. The Eurapco Academy supports career development, enhances Partners’ performance, and fosters learning, innovation, and future success within the Eurapco Alliance.
