This course involves on campus teaching. For students unable to come to campus there will be a remote option. See the Class Summary for more details.
This course provides a simplified model for solving actuarial problems in practice. Sample actuarial problems are examined in detail, with solutions being developed using Excel and Visual Basic. These solutions are then reported to the stakeholders of the problem. The aim of this course is to develop actuarial capabilities beyond the technical foundations taught in other actuarial courses.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of actuarial problems in a variety of challenging contexts;
- Identify the key factors that need to be allowed for in solving actuarial problems;
- Use computer-based tools to assist in solving complex actuarial problems; and
- Communicate in writing detailed results of the solution to an actuarial problem to a variety of stakeholders.
- Typical assessment may include, but is not restricted to: exams, assignments, quizzes, presentations and other assessment as appropriate (100) [LO 1,2,3,4]
