Team UCLA Bruins placed as a semi-finalist in the 2019 Society of Actuaries Student Research Case Study Challenge. All except one of the undergraduate team members were freshman including Bingcui (Violet) Guo, Calvin Ng, Roger Yuan, and Xijuan Liu. Led by Coach and Assistant Adjunct Professor Enes Ozel, the team researched a case study situation, conducted actuarial analysis, formulated solutions, and presented recommendations to a panel of judges. The SOA Case Study Challenge is held annually to provide an opportunity for students to apply their actuarial skills on a real world problem. This year, the challenge focused on “designing an automobile insurance product for autonomous vehicles.”
The Society of Actuaries (SOA) is dedicated to advancing education and research for the actuarial profession.
