Master of Science in Statistics


Introduction
The B.Sc. program will prepare students for an actuarial career as well as postgraduate work in mathematics or applied mathematics. The M.Sc. program offers further specialization in statistical sciences focused on the actuarial applications. An actuary uses mathematical tools to do risk assessment mainly in the financial services sector including insurance companies, commercial banks, investment banks and retirement funds. Actuaries play a key role in designing insurance plans by determining the premium, monitoring the profitability of the company, and recommending corrective measures whenever necessary. To be successful, they need strong mathematical skills, business knowledge and a good understanding of human behavior. As such the curriculum for this course includes business and social science courses in addition to a broad spectrum of mathematics courses. This program will give our students the competitive edge in the financial industry that a traditional undergraduate program in mathematics would be unable to provide.
