MSc Actuarial Management


Course Description

The UK Institute and Faculty of Actuaries accredits the MSc in Actuarial Management course. Indeed, Cass Business School was the first institution in the UK to have both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes fully accredited by the UK Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

Consequently, the course allows you to study the key areas of actuarial practice whilst also offering the opportunity to gain exemptions from the examinations of the UK Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

In particular, students are able to gain exemptions in Actuarial Risk Management (Subject CA1), Communications (Subject CA3) and most of the Specialist Technical (or ST) subjects*

In addition, students who have outstanding Core Technical (or CT) subjects are able to gain exemptions in many of these also (covers Subjects CT2, CT4, CT5, CT6 and CT8 only).

The MSc in Actuarial Management also provides a good foundation for students preparing for examinations of the professional bodies in other countries (including the United States, Canada and Australia).
