View this text within the context of the catalog.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Quantitative Risk Analytics provides students the quantitative skills necessary for employment in the insurance and risk industry, including a mathematical treatment of probability and statistics, interest-rate theory and financial mathematics, predictive analytics and other data science tools, and insurance operations.
Admission
To be considered for admission to the major, the student must have:
a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 in all courses taken at MSU.
a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 in MTH 132, MTH 133, and MTH 234 or equivalent courses.
a minimum average of 3.0 in the grades in MTH 360 and STT 441.
Students who declare the major in quantitative risk analytics are automatically reviewed at the end of every semester and are either admitted or informed of their progress. Students must be admitted to a degree-granting college at the time they have completed 56 credits. Those who do not meet the criteria may consider a major in either Mathematics or in Statistics and Probability.
