Sungwon Ahn
We are delighted to have a second member of our department, Professor Sungwon Ahn, achieve his ASA designation. The combination of his deep knowledge of actuarial topics and his ability to apply these skills to real world data sets, allows Prof. Ahn to help our students gain the practical skills they need to succeed in the actuarial industry. Prof. Melanie Pivarski Mathematics, Economics and Actuarial Science Department Chair

Professor Sungwon Ahn completed the educational requirements for Associateship in the Society of Actuaries (ASA) this summer. He joins Professor Wanwan Huang who became an Associate earlier this year. To achieve the ASA designation, Prof. Ahn 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.

“We are delighted to have a second member of our department, Professor Sungwon Ahn, achieve his ASA designation. In his first few years at Roosevelt, he has distinguished himself both in his speedy achievement of the ASA designation and in his guidance of students in practical statistical projects,” says Professor Melanie Pivarski. “The combination of Prof. Ahn's deep knowledge of actuarial topics and his ability to apply these skills to real world data sets, allows him to help our students gain the practical skills that they need to succeed in the actuarial industry.”

Preparation for the ASA designation is embedded within Roosevelt’s actuarial science curriculum. In addition to coursework that prepares students for ASA exams, our students also gain valuable professional development experience by attending professional conferences, giving presentations, meeting with actuaries, and attending Roosevelt’s annual Actuarial Science Career and Networking Fair which will be held this year on September 20.
