The Career

With big data and machine learning, the actuarial landscape has changed dramatically in the previous decades. The field of actuarial sciences now better suits a “business-minded analyst.” Think of Haas majors put together with Mathematics, Statistics, Data and Computer Sciences, Finance, and Economics—that’s an actuary. Actuaries have the training of a data scientist with interdisciplinary strength and stability through verbal and visual communication in report-writing. An actuary has the analytic authority that few will challenge. 

Cal Actuarial League provides its members with exposure to the different fields within the actuarial industry through technical workshops and hands-on projects and presentations through the Case Competition. In addition, students are able to learn about the career and its relationship to the data sciences and financial industries.
