Actuarial Science Program Earns 2017 Industry Award
Reflecting the School of Risk Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science’s (SRM) “exemplary work in preparing students for a career in the property and casualty insurance industry,” St. John’s University has been selected to receive the 2017 Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) University Award.
According to CAS, the University was selected for its ability to incorporate property and casualty insurance into the curriculum, its industry engagement, and its innovative risk management program. CAS particularly commended the School’s capacity for building and maintaining connections with industry leaders.
"This award reinforces the quality of our actuarial science curriculum and faculty at St. John's,” said Norean R. Sharpe, Ph.D., Dean, Joseph H. and Maria C. Schwartz Chair, and Professor of Decision Sciences, The Peter J. Tobin College of Business. “We are proud to be among the top rated actuarial science programs in the US."
A division of the Tobin College, SRM is a leader in risk and insurance education and training, drawing candidates from around the globe.
St. John’s will be recognized at the CAS Annual Meeting in Austin, TX, in November. Winners of the award were determined by a panel of judges from across the property and casualty insurance industry and receive a $5,000 award to further enhance academic programs.
