The Actuarial Mathematics Master aims to train specialists in the habitual domains of an Actuary professional: mathematics, statistics, finance, computing science. The degree will provide a strong grounding in risk management, pricing techniques, solvency models, provisions, among others. The established programme complies with the International Actuarial Association (IAA) and the Actuarial Association of Europe (AAE) Syllabus, and perspectives the international accreditation.
The Master is designed for students with a degree in Mathematics, Science, Technologies, Engineering, Economics, Management or Accounting, with a strong appeal for Applied Mathematics.
The Actuarial Mathematics Master ensures the education of risk managers specialists: Actuarial specialists. These specialists are in demand by a wide range of organizations that address risk management, such as insurance companies, banks, investment management companies, consulting companies, pension fund management societies, governments, etc. Therefore, the search for these professionals doesn’t restrain to the national labor market. Students may also develop and lead innovation/research projects, in business and academic contexts, by pursuing their Doctoral studies.

Conditions of admittance
The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.
The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes. All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).
All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.
For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative evaluation.
The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
