Baruch Students Win CAS Case Competition

BARUCH COLLEGE–Baruch College students William Huynh and Yuhan Lin were on the winning team of the 2023 Casualty Actuarial Society Case Competition, winning a $250 cash prize.

Lin is a junior majoring in statistics and quantitative modeling, and William Huynh is a sophomore majoring in actuarial science. They are both part of Baruch’s Actuarial Science Society known as BASS.

They both took part in the CAS Student Central Summer Program and competed in the CAS Case Competition on July 31. 

Lin described the CAS Student Central Summer Program to The Ticker: “This program is eight weeks long and for the first six weeks we have weekly modules about pricing, reserving and everything about insurance. Those programs and lectures are more likely to be [about the] practical side of actuaries, and in the last two weeks we have a case competition.”
