Hola a todos, soy mexicano, no soy actuario, estoy estudiando la carrera de matemáticas en la UNAM y tengo una duda haber si alguien me la puede resolver.

La carrera de matemáticas contiene muchas optativas dentro de su plan de estudios, apenas estoy en segundo semestre, pero quisiera saber si tomando todas las optativas de la carrera de actuaria, y asi egresar con un conocimiento casi equitativo al de los actuarios, podria hacer los examenes SOA o CAS, o es realmente necesario tener el titulo de actuario.

Y de poder tomar los examenes, me ayudarian a conseguir un trabajo digamos en una empresa de seguros o solo aplica para USA.

Es mi primer post, de antemano gracias

En los EEUU, necesita hacer los examenes ser empleado como actuario. Sus clases o estudios pueden ayudarle aprender conceptos y desarollarse su aptitud de matematicas.
tambien, en los EEUU la mayoria de "actuarios estudiantes" pasen dos o tres examenes antes de ganar empleo. La compania paga por los examenes siguientes.

lo siento si falta mi espanol.

Ah I see, so you don't have to have a major in Actuary/actuarial science to take the examinations, you could have a major in Mathematics and take classes that has to do with actuarial science and you could also take the exams?

right. You really don't need to have a degree in math (or actuarial science), pretty much any degree is ok as long as you have passed (or can convince your potential employer that you can pass) exams. Usually actuaries do have a math/business/computer background. It's all about the exams.

Sorry to post in english in here, but your english is better than my spanish.

I wouldn't recommend taking the exams if you plan to work for an insurance company in Mexico. Only a handful have heard of the exams and little to no value is given to them. Besides, career advancement is not linked to exam progress (again, in Mexico) which is the main benefit of the exam system.

On the other hand, if you want to work in the US the exams are a must but getting an offer and visa can be tricky. You should try your luck with a master's in finmath at a Ivy League school, as a minority getting in shouldn't be a problem and you can let Banxico pick up the tab (Obamacare style!), this way you'll earn more and you stand a chance of getting hired (not in insurance, of course but who cares). No exams required!

All right, thanks for your answers, I would make the exams even if it doesn't help me to get a job (at least here in Mexico) it would be something good for the CV
