One Master's programme, two tracks
The Master's programme in Actuarial Science and Mathematical Finance diverges into two in-depth academic specialisation tracks:
Both tracks offer a common knowledge base in Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance. The general track however is preferred by students who wish to prepare for the APC Post-master programme (in Dutch) to qualify for membership of the Royal Dutch Actuarial Society, because it offers ample space for electives that can be selected so as to meet the APC entry requirements.
The QRM track offers a slightly broader foundation in Actuarial Sciences & Mathematical Finance, featuring two extra required modules.
After successful completion of this programme, you will receive an accredited Master’s degree in Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance, and the title Master of Science (MSc).
