Case Competition

The Actuarial Science Program at UT holds a case competition every semester for students to apply what they have learned in their classes and practice their presentation skills. In the past, the program has partnered with companies such as Willis Towers Watson and Cigna to develop the cases and judge competitors. Volunteers from the student-run Actuarial Science Club help ensure the cases are a reasonable difficulty and that the competition day runs smoothly.

"One of the biggest takeaways is just learning how to tackle a big project as a group. Learning communication and team work as you try and accomplish a problem no one has seen before makes for a great experience. It was also great practice for presentation skills and communicating one's thought process through a complicated problem..."
