Actuarial Science Minor

The actuarial science minor is for students who are interested in a career as an actuary or in other areas of industry dealing with risk management. Actuaries identify and manage the financial impact of risk. They typically work for financial or insurance companies. With margins thinner, actuarial accuracy is more necessary than ever to the global economy. To become an actuary, you must pass a series of examinations administered by one of the professional societies. The Society of Actuaries (SOA) has approved CBU for Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) in all three areas of accounting and finance, economics, and mathematical statistics.
