The Fish Dinner is a fantastic opportunity to network and engage with professionals from the actuarial industry, who attend from all across Canada.
The Fish Dinner is held every October.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
