This course aims to extend actuarial students' knowledge of modern analytical tools and techniques beyond those introduced in introductory actuarial courses. It further aims to teach students how to apply this knowledge in real-life business settings, preparing them for more complex and practice specific applications which will be taught in future courses in their actuarial education.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- explain where and how their analytical work can add value to the business environment and strategy;
- source, interpret, evaluate and prepare data for modelling;
- select and justify appropriate predictive analytic techniques for a given business problem;
- apply predictive analytic techniques to solve estimation and classification problems;
- evaluate and compare performance of different models; and
- communicate findings to a range of audiences.
