ASCI 5990 - Practicum in Actuarial Science

Hours: 3
Application of the actuarial science and MBA curricula through hands-on experience. Throughout the program, practicing actuaries will be invited to present topics in their fields of expertise (life, health, property, risk management, or financial investment, etc). For this capstone experience students will choose, in consultation with a practicing actuary and the course instructor, a specific actuarial science topic to study, about which they will complete a significant semester-length project. Typically working in teams, students will prepare and submit a written report of the project (may include objective, data collection, data analysis, actuarial modeling, and conclusion), as well as present the report orally in class.
Prerequisites: Two courses from ASCI 5000, 5100, 5200, 5300, 5500.
