Master of Actuarial Studies

What’s the likelihood of an earthquake hitting Melbourne’s CBD? Or the global stock market crashing, again?

This degree will take you deeper into the intricacies of risk and analytics. As you develop strong actuarial judgement skills, you’ll be in a position to make big calls in a range of business contexts.

What you’ll learn

You’ll continue to strengthen your communication, critical thinking and actuarial judgement skills – and have the chance to further tailor your degree. Choose from a wide range of elective units across econometrics, actuarial practice, economics, business modelling and finance.

This degree could be for you if…

You’ve recently graduated from a science or maths based degree, and you’re looking to put your new skills in context. If you’re technical minded, and love working with numbers, actuarial studies could put you on the path to an exciting career.

This degree is also a great option if you’re a professional looking to further develop your skillset.

Beyond the classroom

Where it could lead

With strong technical skills and business acumen, you’ll be qualified to join a range of industries – both here in Australia, and overseas. You might find your place working as an actuary, forecaster, risk manager, analyst or adviser.
