PhD in Actuarial science

A doctorate is evidence of a person’s ability to carry out original research in a given area. The aptitude for research and the originality of the subject are two essential qualities which HEC strives to develop in its doctoral candidates. In this respect, HEC encourages qualified researchers, from Switzerland and elsewhere, to undertake research leading to a Ph.D.

Doctoral studies at the Department of Actuarial Science (DSA) offer candidates the possibility of acquiring a high level of knowledge through intensive research training. Doctoral studies aim at developing the ability to complete an independent scientific study within an agreed timetable, to make an original contribution to research, and to add to the body of knowledge in the chosen specialist area. Undertaking a doctoral program implies a personal commitment for three to five years. It involves a long course of study dedicated to research, the results of which will be presented in a thesis.

The DSA offers a stimulating and productive research environment where PhD candidates work in close interaction with the professors. The research areas cover both theoretical topics (e.g., risk theory, credibility theory, financial mathematics, statistics) and applied topics (evaluation of insurance companies and pensions funds, financial markets and services, insurance products, etc.). Successful candidates aim for promising careers in academia or in industry.
