Center of Actuarial Excellence
Center of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) designation for The University of Iowa has been renewed for 2016! Our school’s designation was reconfirmed for a period of five years beginning December 22, 2014 and continuing through December 31, 2019.
The Department’s Actuarial Science program is one of only two in the U.S. that are over 100 years old. In 2010, it was one of the first to be certified as a Center of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) by the Society of Actuaries (SOA), after a detailed review process involving curriculum, faculty composition, graduate quality, connection to industry, and research/scholarship. The SOA review committee stated that “Iowa’s job placement record, exam pass rates and credentialed graduate rates are exceptional.”
