Bachelor of Science (Honours) Actuarial Sciences JPT/BPP(MQA/PA6639)04/21
Bachelor of Science (Hons) Actuarial Sciences is a professional degree that trains actuaries who are equipped with the capabilities to model and analyse finance related risks, especially in the banking and insurance industries. Besides that, private sectors such as financial planning institutions, corporations, investment companies and brokerage firms have a high demand for skilful actuaries in risk management and financial consulting services.
QIUP’s Actuarial Science programme is designed according to the topics and subjects required by the professional examinations of the Society of Actuaries (SOA), Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) and Malaysia Financial Planning Council (MFPC). Students in this
programme are encouraged to take the examinations during their academic years. The university will provide guidance and support for the students to enrol in those professional examinations.
Besides the common actuarial science subjects which are required by the programme, QIUP’s Actuarial Science programme has included 4 significant specialisations, (Financial Planning, Data Science, Banking and Islamic Finance) and we have incorporated popular software systems such as, SPSS, R, Python, C++, SAS and Real Time Stock Price Tracking System in our curriculum design. This is to ensure
that the graduates of this programme are not only able to analyse business or finance problems using mathematical models, but they are also able to provide specific financial solutions.
