The Evaluation for public policies for sustainable Long-Term Care in Spain Workshop will be held in Barcelona, from July 4th to July 5th It will be organized by Riskcenter in collaboration with the International Long-Term Care policy Network. Among others, its aim is to provide a forum for researchers in the field of Long-Term Care Policy in Spain to discuss their work. Presentations will be given in Spanish by leading experts.
5 Post-graduate education and executive programs The Master of Science in Actuarial Science and Finance offers the best option for the specialization in insurance and quantitative finance. The main objective of the master's degree is to prepare professionals with solid quantitative training (mathematics and statistics) and in business (business management). The master's degree Financial and Actuarial Sciences is an academic degree with a major orientation toward the labour market. However, the strong technical training offered in the program (with the specialization Advanced Financial and Actuarial Models) also provides students with the training needed to begin third-cycle (doctoral) studies. The master's degree responds to training needs traditionally required in the fields of insurance and finance (pension schemes, financial instruments and markets, etc.), but also, explicitly, to the new demands for training set out in the European Union directive Solvency II (which refers to the actuarial function in article 48, underscoring the knowledge and skills required of actuaries). The master's degree offers specialized training for risk management within companies and to ensure the fulfilment of capital requirements established for organizations in the European Union. The Executive Master of Insurance and Financial Management is a parttime program for professional managers who seek a tailored Master in Business Administration for the Insurance and Financial Sector and who focus their careers to CEO, CFO or CRO positions.
