Beyond Curriculum

Unique Internship Programs

IFAA offers two internship programs: Actuarial Training Program and Summer Internship Program, in which students work in the actuarial departments of insurance companies and related business entitles (such as actuarial consulting firms and reinsurers). We are the pioneer of actuarial internship program since the establishment of IFAA, we have had a good relationship with well-known insurance companies, and they offer internship positions to our students regularly and provide actuarial training to students through their normal activities. Students make good use of these opportunities to get involved in the real business world, gain practical work experience, and enhance their interpersonal and communication skills. Our partners include AIA, AXA, BOC Group Life Assurance Co. Ltd., Ernst & Young, Chubb, FWD Life Insurance, HSBC Insurance, Manulife, Milliman, Prudential, RGA Reinsurance, Sun Life and Swiss Reinsurance. Many of our students have received informal return offers after the internship.

In addition to Actuarial Training Program, the CUHK Business School also offers summer internship. Internship opportunities come from various business fields, such as investment banking, general banking, business consulting, insurance management, marketing, and accounting. Quite a few internships are offered exclusively to IFAA students. The opportunity to work in a variety of departments, such as actuarial, accounting, financial and underwriting departments, gives students the chance to experience the different aspects of operations in the insurance industry, which enrich their learning experience and serve as a useful launch-pad for their future career development. Our students received summer internship offers from multinational insurance companies and reinsurance companies including Chubb, AIA, AON, Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A., AXA, Ernst & Young, HSBC, Manulife, Milliman, MSIG Insurance, Prudential and Sun Life.
