Actuarial Exams (DAV) at the University of Ulm

This additional education is regulated by the German association of actuaries (DAV). The membership of this organization gives you the right to bear the title “Actuary (DAV)” and requires passed exams in all so-called basic subjects:

  • Insurance Mathematics (includes Life-, Health-, Pension- and non-life insurance mathematics)
  • Economic and Legal Environment
  • Applied Stochastics
  • Financial Mathematics and Risk Assessment
  • Modeling and Enterprise Risk Management
  • Corporate Management

To become a member of the DAV you also need basic knowledge in measure theory, elementary probability theory and statistics as well as compulsory seminars in communication and professionalism. Additionally, you have to pass four DAV exams about special knowledge after eight years of working experience (for students in Econo-Mathematics this reduces to three years).
