We worry about a lot of dangers in the modern world, but what's actually most likely to hurt us?
It's an actuary's job to know the answers — or at least the probabilities.
Welcome to the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences
Actuaries are the analytical backbone of our society’s financial security programs. They are also certified professionals who have gone through a series of examinations to obtain a professional designation. As a career, it is consistently ranked among the top professions in terms of work environment, employment outlook, job security, and salary.
How do we extract useful information from the ever-growing oceans of raw data being collected? The mathematical sciences have established an impressive track record in providing methodology for “big data” problems as they have emerged in recent decades. We're looking for graduate students to join our ASU Research Training Group (RTG) program to keep pace with these challenges.
