First of its kind
Robinson is the first major research business school in North America to formally combine a degree program in data science and actuarial science.
Only one more semester
Although each individual degree is a three-semester program, by extending the program of study by only one semester, MSA/MAS graduates can significantly differentiate themselves from their competition in the labor market by anticipating the rapidly emerging needs of financial services employers including insurers, banks, asset managers, and hedge funds.
Easily broaden your portfolio of knowledge
Because the course work is coordinated, dual degree students can seamlessly acquire expertise in actuarial science and data science even if they do not fully commit to earn the second degree.
