It boasts a dedicated group of faculty experienced in passing actuarial exams offered by the professional societies and recognized by the insurance industry. Auburn University is accredited by the Society of Actuaries to offer courses to satisfy the Validation by Education Experience (VEE) requirements in Applied Statistical Methods, Corporate Finance, and Economics. What is an Actuary? Actuaries bring a complex future into focus by applying unique insight to risk and opportunity. Known for their comprehensive approach, actuaries enable smart, more confident decisions. Where do actuaries manage risk? At this time, the majority of actuaries work in careers that are associated with the insurance industry, though growing numbers work in other fields. They are heavily involved in insurance because that is society's most powerful answer for managing risk.

Actuaries work in all sectors of the economy, though they are more heavily represented in the financial services sector, including insurance companies, commercial banks,... [-]
