2017 CAS UNIVERSITY AWARD WINNER - UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN - MADISON
The actuarial science program at University of Wisconsin – Madison, led by Professors Jed Frees, Margie Rosenberg, and Peng Shi, consists of 11 faculty members and 421 actuarial students.
UW–Madison was recognized as a 2017 award winner for initiatives such as:
- Opportunities for students to meet with many property and casualty companies in a variety of settings, from formal presentations to sharing meals and simulating the management of an insurance company.
- Contributions that reach beyond its campus, including faculty members who serve as editors for various insurance journals and have published a number of recognized property and casualty focused papers.
- Development of a Technology Enhanced Learning program that includes web-based videos that provide support for candidates of CAS Exams 1, 2, 3F and 4 and were produced by students. The videos are available online, and, by UW’s estimates, have been watched by over 90,000 people from 140 different countries.
