This week's Mathematical Sciences Department colloquium is given by Dr. Ronald Dearing, Adjunct Professor, University of North Texas and Adjunct Professor, Southern Methodist University.
Dr. Dearing will discuss an alternative to the traditional brick and mortar facility we know as an insurance company. A case study, based on what is generally considered to be the world’s first “virtual” insurance company, will present the business problem, the business solution, the parties involved, the economics, and the structure of the virtual company. Dr. Dearing was one of the early proponents of the virtual concept and he’ll describe how the virtual enterprise came about and where it is today.
Coffee will be served in FO 2.610F at 12:30 PM.
