Cigna's Actuarial Executive Development Program Goals
Attract and retain high-caliber actuarial professionals who will perform financial and actuarial functions
Professionally develop each member and support them in pursuing senior level management and leadership roles throughout Cigna. The Actuarial Executive Development Program (AEDP) has an outstanding track record of producing ambitious and talented actuaries who fill the diverse leadership roles of the organization. Many program graduates go on to become business leaders, financial officers, and Chief Executive Officers, globally and in the United States.
Actuaries are valued at Cigna. We hire exceptional individuals who are self-motivated, ambitious, creative, courageous, strong communicators, and strong leaders.

It’s great to be part of such a close-knit community that really cares about my development and future. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else!”

Strong Commercial Mind
“Cigna offers me a robust platform for developing me as a financial leader with strong commercial mind! Over the many years of my rewarding career with the Company, I have had diversified exposures in different business units and geographical locations including overseas assignments. From the more traditional actuarial role while I was in the AEDP to the business/financial leadership roles after graduating, I learn new things and am being challenged constantly which energizes me all the time.”
From Philadelphia to Bloomfield, to Istanbul to Jakarta
“I joined Cigna in 2002 after 10 years at other insurance companies to be part of a larger worldwide organization. Having worked for smaller domestic Insurance companies, it’s great to be a part of a diverse large organization where you can make a major difference in customer lives. I have had many diverse roles and assisted Cigna with other opportunities outside my core job description. I have worked out of Philadelphia, Bloomfield, Istanbul, and Jakarta offices. I look forward to many future opportunities in Cigna!”
