If you want to enter the challenging yet rewarding world of actuarial science, our executive degree will give you the training to become leaders at the cutting edge of what is a relatively new field, with skills applicable to work both in the region and abroad.
Individual courses are available to professionals looking to broaden their knowledge of the market, risk analysis and statistical analysis and gain insight into the field of actuarial science.
The EMAAS program is jointly run by LAU’s School of Arts and Sciences and Adnan Kassar School of Business, and offered in the Department of Computer Sciences and Mathematics. This interdisciplinary program has two main strands: insurance management and actuarial mathematics. The two concentrations offered allow students to hone their knowledge, develop specialist expertise and learn the professional skills and the code of conduct associated with the insurance and actuarial field.
The EMAAS courses cover most of the syllabi of international Actuarial exams. These prestigious international exams, administered by the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and/or the Causality Actuarial Society (CAS), give you the internationally recognized professional qualification to establish yourself as an actuary with the designation “Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (FSA)” or a “Fellow of the Causality Actuarial Society (FCAS)”.
Experienced actuaries are an essential part of any management team across numerous industries in the fields of insurance, healthcare, banking, investments and pensions. With only a handful of qualified actuaries in the Middle East and a growing market demand for actuarial professionals, there is a huge potential for a career in what is a financially rewarding field.
