The Master of Science in Actuarial and Financial Engineering at KU Leuven covers the fundamental concepts of insurance, techniques for quantitative risk management and principles of modelling assets and liabilities.
Financial institutions, insurance companies, pension funds and consultancy agencies are traditionally the most important employment domains. The classical distinction between financial products and insurance products is fading and the programme focuses on general, quantitative skills related to risk management. As a result, students, now technical experts, will have various career opportunities in all-round risk management.
The government also offers interesting career opportunities for insurance experts. Furthermore, students are often involved in the general management of the company for which the students’ financial and actuarial skills can contribute to the analytical decision-making.
