The Actuarial Science program at the University of Minnesota has allowed me to take my passion for Mathematics/Business and turn it into a meaningful education with meaningful and tangible results. The coursework provides a solid theoretical basis of actuarial models and mathematical concepts and elaborates into problem solving that one would see in their career. The program provides excellent opportunities to those who seek them, and has amazing potential for those with the knowledge and dedication to succeed.
