Unique Internship Opportunities

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). 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. In addition to the 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.
