General Information

Actuarial Science deals with design, financing and operation of insurance plans. Financial security for people and companies is the main goal of an actuary.

Actuaries are in demand in business and industry, and the average salary is quite high. Prospective actuaries take a series of tests, and this program will prepare you for the first test, which should lead to quick employment.
