This Department, which offers the Financial Risk Management programme at the Stellenbosch University, is one of the oldest of its kind in South Africa. Ten years before it was founded in 1946, Statistics was already presented as a subject, but mainly for students in the commercial sciences. Because of this, the Department was established in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences. Since then the number of environments needing tuition in statistics has increased rapidly. Since 1985, actuarial science has also been offered by the Department. Besides its academic responsibilities, the Department also houses the Centre for Statistical Consultation. The Centre provides a statistics support service to all the researchers of the University.
