    Overview

    What is it about?

    Melbourne Business School's Master of Actuarial Science is the fastest graduate pathway to prepare you for the actuarial profession. Graduates of this degree will be analytical in the application of actuarial theory, knowledge, principles, techniques and data. They will be problem solvers capable of explaining, applying and critically evaluating the use of actuarial models, particularly in relation to insurance and superannuation.

    Who is it for?

    The Master of Actuarial Science is designed to provide non-actuarial graduates with their initial education in actuarial studies. It's suitable for graduates who have mathematical or statistical specialisations (e.g. mathematics, physics or engineering). If you have studied an actuarial major previously, then we recommend the Master of Commerce (Actuarial Science).

    Professional Accreditation

    Graduates of the Master of Actuarial Science who have performed at a sufficiently high level, will be eligible for exemption from all of the subjects comprising Part I of the professional requirements of the Actuaries Institute.
