We will also discuss how the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) intends to go about the Data Science programme that has already been rolled out to student members.

The audience will comprise Masters students, final-year undergraduate students and alumni. The event will begin with an introduction of the speakers and each speaker will have time to present their work. A panel discussion will then follow and will be moderated by a faculty member from Cass. During the panel discussion, members of the audience will have a chance to participate by asking questions. We will have gifts for members who were active during this session.
The event will end at 8:30 p.m. to give room to a networking session with the speakers.
