Introduction

Actuarie - Master

An actuary is an expert in financial, demographic and insurance risk assessment, with a solid technical background in mathematics, statistics, economics and law. The master's degree in Financial and Actuarial Sciences provides the multidisciplinary training required to work as an actuary in compliance with international standards. The programme covers the Core Syllabus requirements for actuarial training established by the International Actuarial Association and the Actuarial Association of Europe.
The master's degree is structured along the same lines as the most renowned university programmes in actuarial training in Europe and meets the professional requirements of the insurance and finance sectors (insurance, social welfare systems, financial tools and markets, and the assessment and management of associated risks). Therefore it also meets the training demands set out in the EU Solvency II Directive.

The program consists of 120 credits of face-to-face courses.
