This Master’s degree offers a complete basic education for future actuaries. An actuary is a business professional who deals with the financial impact of risk and uncertainty.

Most of the subjects taught involve applied mathematics, the actuary’s most important working tool. Good knowledge of management, finance, economics and information technology is also necessary to ensure an adequate level of professional expertise.
