||Faculty of Arts and Science
|Field of Study:
This program combines a solid education in Actuarial Mathematics with an extensive introduction to Finance, equivalent to a Minor. It is designed for students who wish to pursue a career as an actuary, but at the same time want to specialize in the financial issues of actuarial practice. The program requirements combine all the compulsory courses of the BA/BSc program in Actuarial Mathematics (60 credits) with another 30 credits of required Accounting, Economics and Finance courses. Admission is limited to at most 15 students with excellent academic records.|
Students become familiar with computer programs that are used by actuaries to analyse socioeconomic data, make defined benefit plan calculations and create actuarial tables. They develop expertise in writing professional reports and become familiar with document preparation methodology. Employers such as insurance companies and consulting firms often classify these positions as actuarial assistants or actuarial analysts. Students work in a structured business environment that promotes teamwork and accountability, and enhances communication skills.
