- [00:00:02.877]I'm Sue Vagts, and I turn students into professionals
- [00:00:05.899]in actuarial science.
- [00:00:07.837]You should major in actuarial science
- [00:00:09.477]if you're strong in math and you want to apply it
- [00:00:11.477]in a business setting.
- [00:00:13.077]Actuaries often work in situations involving risk.
- [00:00:16.597]That sometimes can be in insurance
- [00:00:19.288]where you're helping individuals solve problems
- [00:00:21.328]like handling the risk of getting into a car accident,
- [00:00:24.507]or the risk of poor health,
- [00:00:25.979]or the risk of not having enough money during retirement.
- [00:00:28.728]But it's much broader than that as well.
- [00:00:30.667]You could work in a company
- [00:00:32.277]helping them manage their investment risk.
- [00:00:34.517]You could work for government
- [00:00:36.237]helping them solve complex social problems like welfare.
- [00:00:40.099]Actuarial science is commonly ranked in the top five
- [00:00:42.677]in job surveys for salary, opportunities for advancement,
- [00:00:46.467]and job satisfaction.
- [00:00:48.088]One of the reasons it's highly rated in job satisfaction
- [00:00:50.821]is there's a wide range of opportunities for individuals.
- [00:00:53.571]If you like to be highly analytical,
- [00:00:55.251]there's lots of jobs for you there.
- [00:00:57.061]If you like to interact with people,
- [00:00:58.571]there's lots of jobs for you there,
- [00:00:59.971]and everything in-between.
- [00:01:01.811]I'm really excited about the new building,
- [00:01:03.771]because we'll have an actuarial science center
- [00:01:05.851]where students will be able to hang out,
- [00:01:07.809]study, hold meetings, and tutors will be available.
- [00:01:11.525]We have a strong academic program
- [00:01:13.285]and a strong pre-professional program.
- [00:01:15.253]And that's why Nebraska
- [00:01:16.307]is a great place to study actuarial science.
