Risk & Actuarial Studies

Design Creative Solutions to Minimise Risk in Business

In a world of uncertainty, businesses are constantly relying on risk management experts to help them protect and create value for their stakeholders. You could be the expert that companies (including banks, insurers, and consulting firms) turn to when they need to understand and manage risks. With an acute knowledge of risk modelling and management, actuaries can evaluate the likelihood of future events and design creative ways to reduce the impact of undesirable events that might occur.

Similarly, some students (especially Actuarial Studies (Co-op) students and dual degree students) may also be eligible to gain exemption from the university accreditation components of the Associate Program of the Actuaries Institute professional examinations.
