Academics

  • In addition to our education system, the body of actuarial knowledge itself needs the nutrition that the academic world can supply.
  • Academics look at problems differently than those of us in the practical world, and that difference in perspective can supplement, in a healthy way, the growth and evolution of the basic subject.
  • In addition to the  diversification in approach, the academic world gives us a bridge to other fields of knowledge that can contribute to actuarial development.
  • The actuarial knowledge base cannot stand isolated from other academic subjects.
