Actuary regularly makes the top 10 best job lists (Forbes, Career Cast). Just like engineering, actuarial careers are rich and varied, as evidenced by the broad range of subjects taught and professions practised. Actuaries mainly work in insurance, banking and asset management, brokerage, consulting and auditing, supervisory authorities and even in some major industrial groups (mergers/acquisitions, employee benefit liabilities, remuneration). Regulatory, prudential and accounting changes in these sectors are driving businesses to constantly improve their risk management and modelling. The favourable employment market means that actuaries are increasingly sought-after for their capacity to assess financial, cyber and pandemic-related risks. The Actuarial Science major aims to train Actuary Engineers to pursue a career in this dynamic sphere with classes focusing on professional expertise given by around 25 experts working in the field.
Graduates of the Actuarial Science major are fully integrated into an insurance and audit market that is being renewed by technological innovations, data science and all the new insurance start-ups, assurtech. The course framework meets the standards imposed by the French Institute of Actuaries with close to 1,200 hours of classes, lectures and projects dedicated to actuarial science over two years.
Including four double-degrees to become an Engineer-Actuary with the Dauphine, EURIA, DUAS and ISUP Actuarial Science master’s degrees, (around twenty students every year). Possibility of obtaining a triple degree with EMLV.
