APU-DMU Dual Degree Scheme
APU's Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Actuarial Studies with a specialism in Financial Technology is designed to provide you an edge with the latest technologies that are in line with the Industrial Revolution 4.0.
This programme is specifically designed to provide students with:
Equipping students with essential fundamentals of Mathematics, Statistics, Economics and Finance starts at Level 1. To complement the core knowledge, the students will also learn Business, Communication, and IT skills, before progressing to the Level 2 of Actuarial Science study.
The core knowledge of Mathematics and Statistics now act as engine to drive the complex models of Economics and Finance in the actuarial industries. Those core knowledge are integrated to form actuarial tools and infrastructure, ready to be used for planning and managing purposes. Students will receive exposure and coaching which are actuarial centric, targeting at industrial applications. They are gradually groomed to be more independent in their study and research efforts.
In addition to the common modules for actuarial studies, students will also take three specialism modules (Financial Technology, Enabling FinTech and Application of AI in Finance) to gain exclusive exposure to FinTech.
Students will undertake an Internship/Industrial Training for a minimum period of 16 weeks to prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the working environment.
The students are now ready to merge their knowledge and industrial experience to forge ahead and put into action their acquired skills in planning, managing and analysing risk. At this level, emphasis is placed on evaluating financial performance of businesses from actuary’s perspectives. Students will have the opportunity to understand the critical roles played by actuaries, for example, in the development and pricing of insurance products. Risk Management, Actuarial Modeling and Ratemaking are some of a wide repertoire of skills to be used.
In addition to the common modules for actuarial studies, students will also take a specialism module (FinTech Risk management and Regulations) to gain further knowledge and skills for FinTech.
