Actuarial Preparation Minor

You will often hear actuaries described as professional risk managers. Actuaries are risk managers in that they asses the likelihood and impact of future, uncertain events. They use their quantitative skills to prepare businesses for the financial impact of the risk to which they are exposed.

Actuaries are professionals because they must meet rigorous standards for admittance to professional societies. Before you can be called an actuary in the United States, you must become an Associate or Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (SOA) or the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS).

For more information, please refer to the Statistics Department's page on actuaries and actuarial preparation.
