Emerging as a key growth sector of the 21st century, actuarial science applies elements of economics, finance, statistics and advanced mathematics to interpret, manage and evaluate risk. Never before have organisations had such extraordinary access to personal information, health statistics, buying habits, population movement, employment trends and much, much more. In these numbers lie the answers to the big questions that really matter.

Provisionally accredited by the Actuaries Institute, the Master of Actuarial Science (Professional) is an innovative and immersive program that combines advanced mathematics, statistics, data analytics, actuarial risk theory, finance, economics and accounting subjects with large-scale, real-life commercial data analysis. Developed and taught by Professor Terence O’Neill, one of Australia’s leading academic authorities in the field, the Master of Actuarial Science (Professional) will deliver smaller classes for personalised attention.

Students will gain unparalleled access to Bond Business School's two financial trading rooms and 40 Bloomberg terminals - the most of any university in Australia.

The professional program follows the same structure as the Master of Actuarial Science program with an additional 20-week Work Integrated Learning component. Work Integrated Learning is a 45 credit point subject designed to promote and support learning, personal development and professional practice. The subject focuses on developing self-analysis and reflective learning skills, and applying theoretical solutions for practical workplace problems. Show less
