Master of Actuarial Practice

Where will your degree take you?

As organisations continue to realise the benefits gained from detailed understanding of their quantitative risk profiles and other information theoretic business components, the demand for actuarially trained individuals has continued to increase broadly across all sectors.

Bond actuarial graduates are very well placed in the job market with skills highly transferrable between countries.



Actuaries are well rewarded for their analytical and problem-solving skills in a growing number of industries. A newly qualified fellow can expect to earn around $125,000 per year and incomes rise quickly while senior actuaries can easily earn over $300,000 a year. No longer restricted to the finance and insurance industries, opportunities for actuaries are emerging in diverse areas such as health, education, energy and environment, public infrastructure, and genetics.

Business Analyst
