Professor Wanwan Huang recently became an Associate of the Society of Actuaries (ASA). To achieve the ASA designation, Prof. Huang passed a series of actuarial professional exams, an e-learning course, a proctored project assessment, validation of educational experiences (VEE) coursework, and a professionalism seminar.
“Professor Huang’s recent accomplishment enhances her ability to lead Roosevelt’s actuarial science program and to guide our students as they work to achieve their own ASA designation,” said Prof. Melanie Pivarski, chair of the Department of Mathematics, Economics and Actuarial Science. “We are very proud of Professor Huang’s work in leading our program, and we look forward to congratulating our alumni when they become ASAs,” continued Prof. Pivarski.
Preparation for the ASA designation is embedded within Roosevelt’s actuarial science curriculum. Students take courses for VEE requirements, exam content courses, and seminars specifically tailored to the first two ASA exams. Students learn programming languages and statistical software, prepare for exams in actuarial study groups, attend professional conferences, give presentations, meet with actuaries, and attend Roosevelt’s annual Actuarial Science Career Fair.
