As a graduate from the Bachelor of Actuarial Sciences you will be able to analyze, interpret, and design solutions to problems that involve risk, applying mathematical and statistical models in the areas of social security, pensions, insurance, finance, and resource optimization. And to develop strategies that answer to social, economic, financial, production, and service needs in global contexts, both ethically and with social commitment.

Once you have finished your study program, you will have a bachelor´s degree in addition to a licenciatura degree. Therefore, your studies will be recognized worldwide.

In addition to enhancing your entry skills, at the Licenciatura in Actuarial Sciences we propose to:

  • Provide you with a solid mathematical preparation.
  • Train you to design models for risk measurement.
  • Empower you in the design and valuation of financial instruments.
  • Train you in the construction of technical and contractual bases for the products of the different insurance branches.
  • Teach you the application of mathematical, statistical, probability, and optimization models.
  • Interested in using math to solve problems.
  • Capable of abstraction to understand and apply math.
  • Able to analyze and summarize.
  • Intellectually curious to understand theoretical and real problems.
  • Able to analyze random phenomena through probability models, and offer solutions to problems in insurance, pensions, finance, optimization, statistics, and demographics.
  • Capable of developing heuristic methodologies through optimization methods and specialized software, and of proposing feasible solutions to highly complex optimization problems.
  • Capable of examining different variables through the development of risk models to design technical and contractual bases for products of different insurance operations and branches, including pensions and reinsurance, as well as their financial supervision.
  • Able to describe the function of financial markets and products, through math and financial tools that involve estimating the value of money through time, in order to value products, design investment portfolios, and measure their risks.
  • Able to identify problems in finance, logistics, production, and economics, so they can be formulated, calibrated, and solved as math programming problems, using math and specialized optimization software.
