ACSC71-400: Actuarial Control Cycle 1


The aim of the Actuarial Control Cycle 1 and 2 is to provide students with an understanding of how the underlying actuarial principles can be applied to a range of real-world problems and issues in commercial and business environments. Applications will include various insurance practice areas and wider fields. Examples will be drawn from traditional and non-traditional areas to illustrate and establish the underlying actuarial principles in a problem-based learning approach, using case studies and business-based examples to cover contemporary issues.  This subject, Actuarial Control Cycle 1, introduces the concept of the Actuarial Control Cycle and uses it as a framework to analyse the impact of issues such as legislative changes and technological changes on the firm.
