MSc Econometrics and Operations Research: Actuarial Sciences (full-time)
The role of actuaries is changing. Until recently, actuaries have concentrated on mitigating risk. Now, their role is broader and more proactive: they study market demand and manage return on investment, both in the short and long terms. To do this, they must take a balanced view of both assets and liabilities. The Actuarial Sciences track at Maastricht University is one of only three such studies in the Netherlands, putting it at the cutting edge of its field. Become a ‘financial engineer’: take Actuarial Sciences.
