Postgraduate masters in actuarial science at Bond University
Our progressive, stimulating Master of Actuarial Science programme combines training in advanced mathematics, statistics, actuarial risk theory, finance, economics and accounting with authentic, large-scale commercial data analysis. Those who choose this course are trained to become actuaries, business professionals who use and amalgamate elements of economics, finance, statistics and advanced mathematics to interpret, manage and evaluate risk.
Developed and overseen by Professor Terence O’Neill, one of Australia’s leading academic experts in this field, our Master of Actuarial Science course promises not only unlimited access to the University’s Macquarie Trading Room and Bloomberg data-sourcing terminals but also small classes and, consequently, comprehensive academic support.
