A QUALIFICATION RECOGNIZED AT THE EUROPEAN LEVEL
Developed by the Institute of Financial Studies and Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies, the master program of ACTUARIAL TECHNIQUES (TACT) returns to the curricula developed in 2005 with 2 degrees: RISK MANAGEMENT and ACTUARIAL TECHNIQUES being organized in 6 series.
The program was based on a Public-Private Partnership, it follows the close relationship between risk management, actuarial calculations and financial markets. The program combines practical approaches with theoretical sessions, providing an important, complex background needed to succeed in a competitive business environment.
Following the conditions of prudential supervision systems implementation at national and international level, risk management is a key element for all sectors of activity, bringing together the activity of actuaries and risk managers. Risk control through identification and quantification cannot be possible without the help of based specialists such as actuaries and risk managers.
This is the scope of the master program we propose – we offer you the opportunity to quantify, control and financing the risk by combining insurance policies with hedging strategies and modern techniques such as TRA (Alternative Risk Transfer).
The program addresses both those who intend to achieve executive positions (by increasing the quality of top management support), but also to those who are already in leadership positions (by developing technical and commercial skills).
The Actuarial Techniques program is useful for those intending to enter the actuarial field or those who intend to develop their math skills. The areas in which you can activate are: insurance industry, banks, pension funds, financial consultancy, public institutions, etc.
The program was externally evaluated and accredited by ARACIS – the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, under the form of MRACT, with 2 specializations in risk management or actuarial techniques in 2008. The master program under the name of ACTUARIAL TECHNIQUE returns to the form known between 2005-2008, being reaccredited under this name in June 2013 by the same supervisory institution – ARACIS.
In 2019, the master program obtained a positive opinion for the accreditation application to the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) from UK. Therefore, three of the core business curricula of IFoA are to be exempted by the students of TACT program : CB1, CB2, CM1.
