Actuarial CYence Challenge – Submission Deadline

Loading Events

At the Ivy College of Business, we’re very excited about our new undergraduate major in actuarial science. To raise awareness of the program and profession, we’re launching the Actuarial CYence Challenge, a competition for high school students.

Individuals or teams of students will work to solve a real-life actuarial/insurance problem. The math problem will challenge students and provide valuable insight into saving for retirement.

Please register for the challenge using the form below. The problem set and challenge rules will be sent to the email address you provide.
