Academic, scientific or professional interest: The traditional separation between business and/or financial institutions and insurance companies is being increasingly overcome and the major financial conglomerates operate in all sectors of the market offering its customers all kinds of savings, risk or credit products. This means that the different risks and their treatment, objective of actuarial studies, are not studied separately but as common management tools. Consequently, it is necessary to train professionals in the financial field, with solid knowledge of stochastic financial calculation, assets and financial markets, banking, portfolio management, financial risk management, etc., and in the specific areas of insurance such as social welfare, life and non-life insurance, reinsurance or newer issues such as health benefits and benefits for persons in need of long-term care. Students will be trained for professional practice in a wide range of the world of work, allowing them to work efficiently not only in financial institutions and insurance companies, but also in any company that, being subject to various risks, will have to evaluate and manage them to ensure its survival.
