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 Bayes 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.

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.

Induction weeks

All of our MSc courses start with two compulsory induction weeks which include relevant refresher courses, an introduction to the careers services and the annual careers fair.
