The Department of Statistics and Applied Probability offers an MS in Actuarial Science, available only to currently enrolled UCSB undergraduates majoring in Actuarial Science who have been pre-screened for entry into the program. This degree prepares students for careers in actuarial industry by combining advanced mathematics (probability and stochastic processes) with deep knowledge of finance and advanced statistical and computational techniques. As part of the program, students will gain first-hand actuarial research experience by working on an actuarial project in partnership with a company.
The MSU Actuarial Science Program is an interdisciplinary program that provides comprehensive training as a major or a specialization to highly motivated students in the College of Natural Science. Finance, economics, accounting, computer science, statistics and probability all play a significant role in the education of our next generations of actuaries. Most actuaries will move into careers in the insurance industry. Preparing for actuarial preliminary exams is stressed throughout the degree.
In 1965, the Simon Fraser University was founded, today Canada's largest and most popular educational institution - a total of about 35,400 students study there. In addition to the main campus in Vancouver, the university has campuses in Sarrea and Burnaby. Together with other well-known universities (institutions in Waterloo, Victoria and Guilf), Simon Fraser University is listed in the list of the best places for higher education (according to Maclean's magazine), and in the national rating it ranks 7th.
The University was named after the famous and successful explorer Simon Fraser. Despite the fact that the university is young enough, its history is full of successes in the most diverse areas - today you can get education in various areas of undergraduate and graduate programs, to study at the MBA program and other professional courses. Students from all over the world value the highest quality of teaching (science and liberal arts are especially prominent). The university is known for its attention to innovations, a modern approach to education, effective courses for entrants. One of the first in Canada, Simon Fraser University introduced an academic year, consisting of 3 trimesters: it allows students to form a more flexible curriculum, enter more courses and disciplines into the schedule.
There are 6 faculties in Simon Fraser University that teach over 100 disciplines and programs:
