**Problem Evaluation**

I have two years old daughter, I want her to be a doctor. To become a good doctor she should study in the best university and it must be expensive. From Now I need to choose strategy to collect more money for her education especially in university.

**Development of feasible alternatives**

There are three alternative to collect more money for her study:

- Saving
- Education Insurance A (EI-A)
- Education Insurance B (EI-B)

**Development the outcome for each alternative**

To choose the best alternative I will use Interest Rate of Return (IRR) Method for compares two Education Insurance Alternatives. After that I will compare the selected Education Insurance with saving alternative using Net Present Value (NPV) Method. IRR Method is very use full and fair in comparing two alternative that have different condition such as period, premium, and benefit. NPV Method I use to compare value of money each alternative in present years.

**Selection of criteria**

The Rule of thumb in IRR method is Alternative will be feasible if IRR value greater than bank interest (in Indonesia we usually use BI Rate). So in this evaluation I will eliminate alternative with IRR value less than BI Rate, because it not economically feasible.

**Analysis and comparison of the alternative**

This calculation using data as below:

- Interest rate (i) 4.93% (BI 7-Day Rate)
- EI-A Period (n) 15 years
- EI-B Period (n) 21 years
- Annual insurance EI-A IDR 12,500,000
- Annual insurance EI-B IDR 17,368,500
- Benefit EI-A in 15
^{th}years IDR 465,400,000 - Benefit EI-B
- In 13
^{th}years IDR 75,000,000 - In 16
^{th}years IDR 150,000,000 - In 21
^{st}years IDR 75,000,000

- In 13

Each IRR and PV of alternatives table comparison are show below:

Tabel 1. IRR Calculation

Tabel 2. PV Calculation

IRR of Education Insurance B is less than Bank interest, so this alternative can be eliminated.

**Alternative selection**

Base on PV calculation Education Insurance A is preferred to choose because it gives the highest value of PV and it would give me more option to choose the best university of my daughter.

**Performance monitoring & Post Evaluation Result**

The alternatives especially education insurance has a term and condition in some situation and assumption, so we need to look more detail and extra analysis to acquire a better conclusion.
