CAS University Award Winner - Arizona State University

Arizona State University’s actuarial science program, led by Dr. Jelena Milovanovic ACIA, AIAA, Actuarial Science Program Coordinator, has five actuarial faculty members and just over 100 actuarial students. The university impressed the judges with its focus on property and casualty insurance across curriculum, industry engagement and innovation.

Examples include:

  • Actuarial science program curriculum that is heavily focused on property and casualty insurance; highlights include a P&C Ratemaking and Reserving course, an Introduction to Property and Casualty Insurance course, and an Actuarial Models Course taught by a casualty actuary and based on P&C examples and data.
  • Extensive real world P&C industry experiences and exposure for students including participating in P&C case competitions, attending and presenting at regional and national P&C conferences, and internship and research opportunities made available through ASU’s partnerships with local P&C companies.
  • Leveraging of P&C industry resources made available through the CAS including the CAS University Liaison, Student Central, and Academic Central Programs, and participating on CAS committees.

“We are honored beyond what words could express to be this year's recipients of the CAS University Award. Since the commencement of the program only 4 years ago we have been working tirelessly to prepare the next generation of actuarial science students for successful transition into the workforce, a workforce challenged more than ever with issues surrounding big data, robotic automation, AI, etc. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the ASU faculty, staff, students, and local and regional industry whose synergistic efforts continue to support the program's mission statement of producing future leaders in the profession.”
