* Students who need to strenghten their knowledge in Actuarial mathematics, Risk theory and Advanced mathematics (depending on their Bachelor Degree) might be required to attend this course at the beginning of the programme in order to be in line with the other students to follow properly the advanced actuarial courses (in the study plan, this will substitute the elective courses).

Graduates will gain methodological knowledge and tools also at an interdisciplinary level that will enable them to fill jobs at high professional levels both in private companies and state or local public institutions; that is to say, in medium and large businesses, banks, insurance companies and welfare institutions. They will carry out analysis and management of human resources, production, and quality. They will analyze and evaluate markets and socio-economic and environmental scenarios and run a statistical analysis of complex phenomena.
