Aon Hewitt - Minneapolis, MN Actuarial Class of 2012 Winona, MN
Having the opportunity to learn from current and former actuaries in the field is what sets the program at the University of Minnesota apart. On top of this, MCFAM, in conjunction with the Actuary Club, sponsors an annual career fair. This is a great opportunity to meet with local and national employers for both internship and job opportunities. The Actuarial Science program does a fantastic job at preparing students for the actuarial exams. It is relaxing to learn exam material from professors who have been through the process themselves. They provide lots of tips to ease everyone's nerves. I also had the opportunity to take the class “Actuarial Math in Practice.” I cannot express how important this class was for me as a student. It is organized so that actuaries who hold day jobs take time out of their busy schedules to teach a five-week segment of the semester. They present us with an actuarial problem and challenge students to solve the problem with little guidance. It builds teamwork and leadership skills and gives us the opportunity to apply all the knowledge we’ve collected through our studies.
MCFAM is the University of Minnesota’s Center for all Financial and Actuarial programs and initiatives within the College of Science and Engineering's School of Mathematics. We provide students, prospective employers and the overall financial mathematics, actuarial and academic communities the benefit of an interdisciplinary and structured framework that combines faculty and industry expertise in shaping academic, professional and competitive excellence and integrity.
