A rigorous curriculum prepares you well. Start with a solid foundation in economics, corporate finance and applied statistical methods. These courses meet the Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) requirement for all actuaries. Add on coursework in accounting, social and behavioral sciences, ethics and computer science and you’ll be up for any challenge.
Our program will give you a leg-up over other university programs. Before you graduate, you’ll be eligible to take the first two professional actuary exams - Probability and Financial Mathematics. With VEE requirements met and a professional exam or two under your belt, you’ll be a highly qualified prospective employee on day one!
"I work with many other departments and individuals throughout the entire company, from marketing to programmers. If you are someone who wants to keep learning and doesn't mind the challenge of being put into new situations that you need to quickly adapt to, then this is the career path for you. Every day is a challenge and that makes every day fun."
