What is the Actuarial Student Program?
The Zurich Actuarial Student Program is a unique opportunity to learn from our breadth of actuarial expertise while pursuing a designation with the Casualty Actuarial Society. Our program provides support throughout the CAS exam process and hands-on experience from the first day on the job.
Actuarial Training Program
In addition to being able to work on actual Zurich projects, students will also benefit from Zurich's Actuarial Training Program in which they learn about various actuarial practices at Zurich at frequent training sessions.
It’s part of our philosophy to recruit the best qualified applicants, and then develop talent from within our organization. As a participant in this program, you will discover the actuarial profession while working alongside Zurich's large community of accredited actuaries.
