FISH DINNER

UMAC's signature event will be entering its' 58th year! The Fish Dinner is a fantastic opportunity to network and engage with professionals from the actuarial industry, who attend from all across Canada.

The 58th annual UMAC Fish Dinner will be held on October 10, 2019. 

INTEREST THEORY STUDY SESSIONS

It is not uncommon that your first actuarial course may be one of the more challenging courses you've taken so far. UMAC holds a study session before each Interest Theory test to better prepare students before writing each upcoming test. This session can help you gauge how prepared you are, as upper year students find test-worthy questions to challenge you with.

CASE COMPETITION

Every year, UMAC hosts a case competition where teams have to analyze and present their solutions on an issue related to actuarial work.

Guest judges come in to evaluate each team's action plan, and prizes are awarded for the best solutions!

ACTUARIAL COMPANY INFORMATION SESSIONS

Every September, UMAC members have the opportunity to network and engage with many recruiters from the actuarial industry! 

These information sessions are designed for companies to showcase the qualities of their companies, while allowing students to make positive, lasting impressions on employers.

CODING WORKSHOPS

There are many actuaries with very strong  resumés from quite a few different universities. To help our UMAC members gain an edge over the competition, we host two workshops led by  former UMAC members!

 

Workshops are held for both R and Excel, two pieces of software used commonly by actuaries.

Other Services

ACTUARIAL SURVIVAL GUIDE

First year actuarial students may be overwhelmed with information about courses to take, exams to write, and people to meet. UMAC has created this guide as a reference for all the facts a new actuarial student should know. It includes information on UMAC fees, courses that correspond to each actuarial exam, approved calculators, and more.

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

The actuarial mentorship program is aiming to pair up 3rd and 4th year actuarial students (mentors) with newer students (mentees) to help them along their journey in becoming an actuary. Mentors can assist mentees with homework, career planning, and any other advice to assist in their general development.

 

The Fall 2019 Mentorship Program is now accepting registrations! 

DIGITAL LIBRARY CATALOGUE
