September 25, 2015: UCSB Actuarial Association — first meeting of the year
The UCLA Bruin Actuarial Society (BAS) invited UCSB to its annual case competition this year as well as many other UC schools. The case competition is an annual actuarial project where an assigned company will volunteer to write a case for students to work in groups and present their findings and analysis according to the guidelines. Along with many other schools who made it to the final round such as UC Berkeley and UCLA, UCSB was one of the team who made it to the final round. Although the selection process was very competitive, with the help of Professor Duncan and Professor Feldman, UCSB was able to make it to the one of the 4 final teams. According to the Vice President of BAS, UCLA had 18 teams where 6 teams were dropped before the first round and 2 teams were chosen out of the remaining teams.
Each group of 4 are required to give a 10 minutes presentation about their finding and their analysis through charts and graphs. There were about 20 judges who will then ask question regarding to power-point slides or additional follow-up questions. The winner team was awarded with $100 for each team member and a trophy. Although UCSB did not win the final round, it was regardless a great learning experience and networking opportunity.
The final round's presentation could be found here.
