FIS and Ernst & Young are teaming up with Nankai University to develop actuarial talent.
Nankai University enrolled postgraduate students in actuarial science for the first time in 1988. It is the earliest university to carry out actuarial education in China and has pioneered actuarial education in China. In the course of more than 30 years of teaching, the curriculum of bachelor’s, master's and doctoral degrees has been gradually improved, and more than 3,000 actuarial professionals have been cultivated for the domestic actuarial industry.
Nankai Actuarial Education always adhere to the concept of running a combination of basic theoretical education and professional skills. Now on celebrating the 100th anniversary of Nankai University, FIS and Ernst & Young actuarial team form a close alliance. Upon the solid foundation of our award-winning actuarial solution Prophet, we aim to equip Nankai students with more advanced actuarial modelling skills.
With free software licenses and technology provided by FIS and professional training courses from Ernst & Young, our new partnerships are designed to meet the growing demand of skillset of actuaries in the Chinese insurance market. As a proponent of Prophet software, Ernst & Young will provide practical tutorials to teach students how to best use actuarial software tools to solve real-world business problems.
We look forward to investing in a new generation of actuarial talents with Nankai University.
