Gross Consulting - St. Paul, MN Actuarial Class of 2012 Green Bay, WI
I really like the strong connections between the University and the actuarial community in the Twin Cities. There are so many great opportunities here and the MCFAM team has done a great job bringing employers and students together. The mathematics portion of my curriculum provided me with a solid base to be successful as an actuary. Also, the way the courses lined up with the first three exams and the job my professors did teaching me the material have gotten me off to a great start. In addition, I was able to get a sort of “hybrid” business/actuarial degree by taking business courses in the Carlson School of Management here at the University. It has enabled me to communicate the results of the actuarial math I do in a way that people without a mathematical background can understand.
