Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science with IT

All Programmes

Description of the Programme:

The discipline that applies mathematical and statistical methods to assess risk in the insurance and finance industries. Actuaries are professionals who are qualified in this field through education and experience. Actuarial science includes a number of interrelating subjects, including probability, mathematics, statistics, finance, economics, financial economics, and computer programming. These problems involve analyzing future financial events especially where future payments involve certain or uncertain timing. Historically, actuarial science used deterministic models in the construction of tables and premiums.

The science has gone through revolutionary changes during the last 30 years due to the proliferation of high speed computers and the union of stochastic actuarial models with modern financial theory In Kenya, therefore, there is a great need to keep up with global professional trends hence the need for a BSc. program in Actuarial science, which provides broad training in the basic mathematics underlying operations of private, social insurance and employee benefit plans.
