SOA Recognizes Purdue University
The Society of Actuaries (SOA) has recognized Purdue University as a SOA Center of Actuarial Excellence (CAE), the highest level of SOA recognition for universities. To qualify for the CAE designation, university and college programs must meet eight criteria and specific requirements. These criteria include appropriate degree and curriculum offerings, graduate count, faculty composition, quality of graduates, appropriate integration with other areas of study, connection to industry, and research and professional involvement. Schools retain the CAE designation for a five-year period, renewable subject to compliance with the CAE criteria.
