This Masters programme is ideal if you have a strong statistical and mathematical background, or a quantitative business degree, and are interested in applying your skills at an advanced level in the world of business.

Actuaries evaluate and manage financial risk. They apply advanced mathematical and statistical techniques to solve financial problems, assess the likelihood of a particular event occurring and the possible financial costs. The role of the actuary is increasingly important in the current economic climate, where volatile markets are contributing to financial uncertainty.

Our MSc Actuarial Finance will introduce you to essential business topics and enable you to apply your quantitative skills to solve complex business problems, such as risk management, insurance and derivatives.The programme is delivered in partnership with the University’s School of Mathematics. You will learn from leading academics based in both schools, giving you access to world-class expertise in both areas.

The Business School has strong links with the actuarial profession and the insurance and pensions industry, giving you the opportunity to interact with practising actuaries and industry experts during your Masters degree.

Careers

Graduates of our MSc Actuarial Finance have entered high-flying careers in insurance, pensions, accountancy, risk management and consultancy. Job prospects are wide ranging and include consultant actuaries, scheme actuaries and insurance actuaries, accountants, investment banking and risk management.

As a result of the high level of quantitative skills developed, you also gain an excellent grounding for PhD study in accounting, finance and economics.
