Master of Actuarial Science / Mathematical Risk Management Dual Degree Option
Georgia State University offers a unique dual-degree option, where students earn both the Master of Actuarial Science degree and the Master of Science in Risk Management and Insurance degree specializing in Mathematical Risk Management. The rapid integration of insurance and financial services and the increasing acceptance of enterprise risk management in broad sectors of the economy imply that risk professionals need to master the understanding of risks associated with assets, liabilities and business operations.

The dual degree program in MAS/MRM is designed to serve the growing need for graduates who:
- Have solid quantitative skills in both actuarial risk modeling and financial risk modeling, and
- Understand the business contexts and possess the necessary communication skills for solving complex risk issues.
