Actuarial Science - Class of 2017

I’m currently working in Enterprise Financial Crime Compliance at U.S. Bank. This is a high growth area because financial institutions must ensure that their products are not being used to move funds from illegal activities. The Actuarial Program helped me prepare for this job because managing risk and making decisions based on several unknowns are the two constant themes with all of my projects. This risk management is the core of what I learned in the program. The skills and knowledge you obtain will help you succeed in any career; and knowing how to use tools such as Excel, SQL, VBA, and SAS - will make you a force to be reckoned with in most roles!
