Actuaries are the leading professionals who find ways to manage risk and turn the risk into an opportunity.

They are experts in:

  • Evaluating the likelihood of future events
  • Designing creative ways to reduce the likelihood of undesirable events
  • Decreasing the impact of undesirable events that do occur

They work at:

  • Insurance companies
  • Consulting firms
  • Government insurance departments
  • Colleges and universities
  • Banks and investment firms
  • Large corporations and public accounting firms

We are looking for students who are mathematically proficient, are good communicators, and can work in teams.  The program prepares you to take the first two actuarial science exams, probability (Exam-P) and financial mathematics (Exam-FM).  We encourage you to take both exams and complete an internship with an actuarial firm while you are at NKU.  If you are interested in exploring this exciting field, please make an appointment to learn more.  By consulting with us early, we can better assist you in developing an academic/career plan consistent with your goals, interests, and abilities.
