Workshop on: global trends in actuarial education and professional development
The Risk Management, Economic Sustainability and Actuarial Science Development in Indonesia (READI) project’s objective is to establish Indonesia as a regional center of actuarial excellence with attention to gender equity to respond to Indonesia’s growing demand for actuaries. The project will increase the number and quality of Indonesian actuarial science graduates available to Indonesian businesses, universities and government agencies, and help strengthen the quality of actuary science education in Indonesia. Canada is contributing $15.53 million to the initiative and has selected the University of Waterloo, Canada to implement the Project. The University of Waterloo, with support from Manulife and Commerce International Merchant Bankers (CIMB) Sun Life, will provide training, scholarships and work experience for young people entering the profession, help strengthen the quality of actuary science education in several Indonesian universities, and contribute to efforts to improve high school mathematics programs. The five-year project is slated for completion in October 2020.
