Through academic excellence, we provide the theoretical foundation for critical thinking in quantitative problem solving and reasoning. We help students to develop their ability to effectively communicate mathematics, and prepare them for success in a career in actuarial mathematics, applied mathematics, applied statistics, or other profession.
2017 Bryant Actuarial Science Case Competition
The Bryant University Mathematics Department, in conjunction with the Bryant University Liaisons from the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), hosted an actuarial case competition during fall 2017.
Students worked collaboratively on a practical insurance industry case study. Based on data provided as part of this competition, students were asked to evaluate the profitability, financial strength, and future viability of a fictitious homeowner's insurance company, Bryant Insurance Group. The competition challenged and inspired students, and tested each team's ability to analyze and respond to business scenarios. With the help of our Universitiy Liaisons, each student group found interesting results that they showcased in a final presentation.
Thanks go to Bryant University CAS Liaisons for their time and guidance: David Deacon, Narragansett Bay Insurance; James Wood, MetLife; and Joseph Muccio, Providence Mutual.
