Who We Are

Bruin Actuarial Society serves as the undergraduate student organization associated with the Actuarial Program at UCLA. Led by our board of officers, comprised of undergraduate students, we host events throughout the school year to develop our members academically, socially and professionally. We also maintain the Actuarial Program's connections with insurance and actuarial consulting firms and keep our members updated on internship and career opportunities.

BAS hosts the Actuarial Program's largest events of each year, including our Annual Career Fair in the fall, Actuarial Case Competition in the winter, and Spring Banquet. Our Career Fair is one of the largest in the nation, with over twenty firms attending annually. In addition, we host firm representatives for information sessions, resume workshops and mock interviews, professionalism workshops, and technical workshops to teach programming skills. 

Prospective students and firms interested in building connections with UCLA actuaries, always feel free to contact us at bruinactuaries@gmail.com.

Based on the high demand for a workshop to connect theoretical concepts from classes and exams to the day-to-day work of an actuary, we are excited to host a Health Insurance Workshop presented by our alumnus Lorenz Glaza from Kaiser Permanente. The workshop aims to demonstrate basic actuarial principles in pricing health insurance and how material learned in class and for exams apply to real-life work.

We are excited to reintroduce the SQL workshops. Databases are a crucial part of the world of big data, and it is crucial to gain expertise in database manipulation. After all, we cannot do any analysis unless we first obtain the data. We will discuss the basics of SQL within the Microsoft Access framework, which is a gentler introduction to writing SQL scripts. The workshop will be split into two parts:

  • Part I will introduce relational databases and the Microsoft Access environment. We will cover the basics of importing data and obtaining subsets of data. We will conclude by covering some data aggregation.
  • Part II will discuss table creation and automation through VBA. We will then cover the most important part: joins. For instance, we may have a database of claims and a database of policies that we want to join together. We will conclude with an extremely involved example wrapping everything together.

We are pleased to announce that our Seventh Annual Bruin Actuarial Society Case Competition, provided by our friends at CSAA, will take place during the first three weeks of Winter Quarter.

At the meeting, we will have a short presentation covering topics that include the following:

  • Rules
  • Logistics for the First & Final Rounds
  • Tips for designing good PowerPoint slides
  • Tips for presenting your case

We will then have a couple of finalists from past case competitions discuss the value of participating, followed by Q&A and team sign-ups.

If you do not yet have a team of four paid BAS members (at least two of whom are freshmen, sophomores, or first year transfers), you can gather with others at the end of the event to form groups and sign up. In past years, we've been able to find a team for everyone at the end of Kickoff Meeting.

No RSVP for Kickoff Meeting will be necessary. At least one member from your team must be present to sign-up. However, we imagine that the information will be valuable to everyone, so we recommend attending if possible. The case will be emailed out shortly thereafter.

As we spent a significant amount of time in our prior Excel workshops focusing on actuarial principles, we wanted to present another opportunity to focus on the actual Excel formulas. We understand the previous workshops went quite fast, so we'll stick to simpler examples in this workshop that highlight the proper usage of common formulas and functionality you will find useful in the case competition, such as VLOOKUP, PivotTables, data visualization, and more. If you found the formulas in our first two Excel workshops difficult to follow, this workshop will serve to fill in those gaps.

Due to overwhelming demand, we will be presenting a brand new workshop about case competitions. Many students find it difficult to tackle their very first case competition. We hope that this workshop will provide some guidance on what steps to take to get the most out of the experience. Officers who have won case competitions in the past will present some concrete tips and suggestions in two parts:

  1. First, we will present some general tips on how to tackle the case and break it down into manageable portions. We will cover some suggestions on efficient ways to split up the work among group members, and finally briefly dissect some examples from past competitions.
  2. Secondly, we will discuss how to create a compelling presentation of your results, incorporating tips from Math 176 (Communication for Actuarial Students), comments from our judges, and advice from old actuarial professors. We discuss what makes a visual aid strong and how to incorporate it into your presentation. We will conclude by giving some general presentation tips that we see students disregard most often, and providing some suggestions on how to approach the question and answer session at the end.

We are excited to announce Part II of our Excel workshops Tuesday, November 27, in MS 6627 at 6 PM. The workshop will tentatively end at 8 PM. This is a continuation of what we covered in Part I (though you do not need to have attended our previous workshop to attend this one).

We will cover what one might expect of a standard intermediate Excel workshop (PivotTables, INDEX, MATCH, sparklines, conditional formatting, SUMPRODUCT, and Solver). Similar to Excel Workshop I, we will be applying these formulas to solving real-world actuarial problems. This workshop aims to introduce intermediate Excel capabilities in the context of reserving.

We highly recommend you attend if you are interested in participating in our case competition in the Winter. Note that as we will be building on concepts introduced in Part I, it will be extremely difficult to keep up if you are not familiar with relative and absolute cell references, VLOOKUP, and PivotTables. If you need a refresher on the content from our first Excel workshop, you can review the materials below.

We are proud to announce one of our most popular workshops of the year, our Microsoft Excel workshops. This workshop will be offered in two parts, the first of which will be Tuesday, November 13, in MS 6627 at 6 PM. The workshop will tentatively end at 8 PM.

Unlike past years, we have modified the structure of this workshop to be more directly applicable to actuarial work you may encounter in a case competition. Mot only will we cover what one might expect of a standard introductory Excel workshop (IF, SUM/PRODUCT, VLOOKUP, SUMIF/COUNTIF, PivotTables, PivotCharts, and GoalSeek), but we will also introduce how to apply these formulas to solving real-world actuarial problems. This workshop aims to introduce basic Excel formulas in the context of pricing.

Summer Announcements

resume

We are now collecting resumes from our members for our 2018 Resume Book. This book will be presented to all firms attending the Eleventh Annual Bruin Actuarial Society Career Fair as well as to actuarial firms that request it for recruitment purposes.

All resumes must:

  • Be in PDF format
  • Be 1 page in length (be wary of blank second pages!)
  • Look neat (no excess white space, text neatly aligned, appropriate number of fonts / colors)
  • Be free of spelling and grammatical errors

Please be sure to indicate which actuarial exams you passed and the corresponding month that you passed each on the Google Form. Failure to adhere to these standards may result in your resume being excluded from the Resume Book without notice.

Submit your resume here by 12:00 PM on Saturday, September 29.

interviewing

In continuation of preparation for the career fair and recruiting season, we will be holding mock phone interviews sparsely over the next month. Each mock interview will last roughly half an hour (20 minutes interview, 10 minutes feedback), and will be conducted by 2 BAS officers. If you wish to have a mock interview but are not available at the listed times, please email us, and we will try to work something out for you.

Sign up for a time slot here.

With the recent changes in the Department of Mathematics course offerings, exam structure in both the SOA and the CAS, and in the U.S. immigration structure, it has been evident that BAS's signature Actuarial Handbook needs updating. Thus, in an effort to provide accurate, up-to-date information pertinent to the actuarial career at UCLA, these publications have been updated over the summer to reflect this new information.
We hope these updates will be useful to all. If you have any questions about the content in the handbook, or if you spot any errors, please shoot us an email at bruinactuaries@gmail.com.

Check out our updated handbook here.

It's never too early to start preparing for recruiting season! This summer, we will be starting our virtual resume critiques much earlier than in the past, to give everyone ample time to receive feedback on their resumes, revise, and resubmit for additional feedback. All BAS members (paid or unpaid) can now submit their resumes to have their resumes read and critiqued by a BAS officer. Please ensure that your resume has been proofread for spelling and grammatical mistakes. We hope we can be of assistance!

Submit a resume for critique here.

signpost

If you are seeking an actuarial internship next summer, we highly recommend that you study for and pass an actuarial exam this summer. Many employers prefer to see candidates that have passed (or intend to sit for) an exam, and summer is a great time to begin studying. There are many resources online to get you started. If you have any questions, you may always contact us via email at bruinactuaries@gmail.com.

We hope you can forward this information to any friends you have who fall into that category of students. The event will cover topics such as:

  • What is an actuary, and what do they do?
  • What do actuarial students learn (in classes and elsewhere) to prepare them for this career?
  • Why become an actuary?

We are excited to announce that our 2018 Spring Banquet will be on Monday, May 7th, 2018 in Carnesale Commons Palisades Room at 6:00 PM, and you're invited! The registration deadline is April 22nd. Please see below for more information.

What is Spring Banquet?

Spring Banquet is a grand dinner and networking event that BAS hosts every Spring Quarter. Each year, over 75 BAS members and 30 representatives of actuarial firms, many of them UCLA alumni, come together for this special event to celebrate the accomplishments the Actuarial Program has made to-date. We will be joined by our actuarial professors and members of the Actuarial Advisory Council, chaired by Mrs. Patty Boyle.

A multiple-course dinner will be served, followed by open networking time over dessert. We can safely say that this is one of the largest gatherings of actuarial talent and students in the region and so a great opportunity for you to get to know more people in a setting more relaxed than a Career Fair.

Freshmen, even those who haven't been heavily involved in BAS events during their first year, are strongly encouraged to attend! This banquet will give you a feel of interacting with professionals before heavy recruitment in the fall.

Register for the Event

This is a two-step process:

  • Pay for Spring Banquet. Paid BAS members will pay $10, and unpaid members will pay $25. You may pay (1) by cash at next week's BAS office hours, (2) by Venmo @bruinactuarialsociety, or (3) by PayPal: here for paid members and here for unpaid members.
  • Fill out this RSVP form by Sunday, April 22nd.
Office Hours

Next week, BAS officers will be hosting office hours in MS 2354 at the following times:

  • Monday, April 16 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
  • Tuesday, April 17 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM and from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

We're ecstatic to kick off Spring Quarter with another workshop on actuarial techniques in Health Insurance, this time in Reserving. The workshop will be presented by Adam Hudes, a Kaiser Permanente colleague of Lorenz Glaza, who hosted Workshop I: Pricing back in Fall Quarter, and also a UCLA alumnus. The event will be in MS 6627 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM on Thursday, April 12th (Week 2).

Like Workshop I, next week's Workshop II will aim to connect the mathematical principles we learn in class to real-life work, namely reserving for and forecasting future health insurance claims. Topics include:

  • Reserving for outside (non-Kaiser) medical expenses IBNR (incurred but not reported) using trend forecasting and linear regression
  • ACA (Affordable Care Act) Risk Adjustment Valuation using sensitivity and multivariable testing
  • Reserving for disputed claims (litigation costs) using interest calculations and probability
  • Margin studies on provisions for adverse deviations using confidence intervals
