Course summary

Overview
Who is it for?

You are a part-qualified actuary or a graduate from a recognised BSc or MSc in Actuarial Science or any other recognised programme with an actuarial flavour. You will have completed the equivalent of at least four subjects from the Core Principles stage of the professional examinations of the Institute of Actuaries (IFoA), including Core Mathematics (CM1).

Objectives

The MSc in Actuarial Management programme covers material relating to the second and third stages of the professional examinations of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, namely the Core Practices subjects and Specialist Principles subjects.

Taking this master's degree at Cass means you are studying in the first institution in the UK to have both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes fully accredited by the UK Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

You can also gain exemptions from the IFoA's examinations. In particular you can gain exemptions in Actuarial Practice (Subject CP1), Modelling Practice (Subject CP2) and Communications Practice (Subject CP3) and most of the Specialist Principles (SP) subjects.

Structure
What will you learn

On the Actuarial Management MSc you will learn to:

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the main areas of actuarial practice
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the general commercial environment
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how to monitor measure and manage risk effectively
Apply actuarial, statistical and related methods to assess and manage risk
Communicate effectively with non-specialists in the area
Display the professional integrity, conduct and responsibility required by the actuarial profession.

In addition to the compulsory modules below, students must choose a total of three modules across Terms 1 and 2 from the list of electives (including at least two SP modules). Note that all Core Principles (CS, CM and CB) modules offered are subject to availability as they are hosted by the MSc in Actuarial Science and students on this programme will be given priority. Finally, the exemption from Communications Practice (CP3) is offered on a subject-by-subject basis.
