After the successful accreditation of its undergraduate Actuarial Science programmes, UCSI University is launching the MSc in Actuarial Management. This elevates UCSI’s offerings in the field of Actuarial Studies to the Graduate-Education level (curriculum covers all topics on the first four CAS/SOA exams and programmes leads to a Master’s degree).
As a post-graduate programme, the MSc in Actuarial Management will have more emphasis on the theoretical fundamentals of the disciples involved. In addition, this Master’s programme offers two structures (C or B) to meet the different needs of learners with a first degree in the quantitative discipline.
Structure C is ideal for professionals such as mathematics teachers, engineers or economists who want a mid-career switch to the actuarial profession. Structure C will equip them with the essential technical knowledge to pursue the Society of Actuaries exams up to associate level. In addition, it provides essential management know-hows for technicists to succeed in ascending the corporate ladder.
Structure B is designed for those who already have a degree in or related to actuarial science and would like to boost their theoretical foundation and develop skills for research. It is ideal for those interested to venture into academia or a management role that conducts more rigorous investigative tasks.
