The University of Hong Kong (HKU) Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science is very pleased to announce that its designation of the Center of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) has been renewed for another period of 5 years. Here are the comments from the award body, Society of Actuaries.
"In awarding CAE status, the CEC would like to commend HKU on its extremely prolific actuarial research record with publications in many of the top actuarial journals by several actuarial faculty members. Also worthy of high praise is HKU's excellent quality of graduates with regard to job placement, professional exam pass rates, and the number of students achieving professional actuarial credentialed status. Integration of business courses, an active student society, and a very strong connection to industry are among the exceptional qualities of the HKU actuarial science program and are instrumental in positioning its students for success."
HKU Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science is one of the 33 Centers of Actuarial Excellence in the world, and one of the only 3 in China/Asia. In addition to that, it is the only university in Asia having been awarded the CAE Research Grant so far.
