Actuarial Science applies rigorous mathematical, probabilistic, statistical, economic, and predictive models to solve important problems in the fields of insurance, banking, finance, healthcare, risk, governments, technology, and other business fields that require quantitative modeling and predictive analytics. Risk is everywhere – from financial markets to the climate, from our health to our home.

The ACS curriculum fulfils all the objectives listed under the Society of Actuaries’ (SOA) Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) guidelines for Accounting and Finance, Economics and Mathematical Statistics.
