The annual Actuarial
Research Conference provides an opportunity for academics
and practitioners from around the world to meet and discuss actuarial
problems and their solutions. The 40th
ARC will be held at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo
de México (ITAM), Mexico City, Mexico between August 11th-13th,
In Mexico, actuarial qualification is obtained solely through the
university education system. Formal training in Actuarial Science
began in Mexico in 1946, at the National Autonomous University (UNAM).
There are now twelve universities that offer undergraduate programs
in Actuarial Science.
The Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México
(ITAM) is a private university founded in 1946 by a group of Mexican
businessmen. It is a small institution of higher education, specializing
in the management and social sciences and related disciplines.
Our Actuarial Science program was the third to be established; in
1982. To date we have a total enrollment of approximately 600 students.
Science program at ITAM is larger than all other programs of
this area in Mexico, except for the one at UNAM.
