Lightbulb VEE Economics in Timeline and On-Demand Formats from ACTEX Learning

ACTEX Learning is pleased to offer VEE Microeconomics and VEE Macroeconomics
Two Complete Online Economics Courses in both:
Traditional “Timeline” and Convenient “On-Demand” Formats

SOA and CAS Approved for VEE Credit

Course Instructor: John Perry, Ph.D.

The On-Demand courses are designed to be taken completely at your own pace! Complete the course in one week, or in twenty-five weeks...it's your choice! The traditional timeline courses are designed to be a more tightly-scheduled course for those that prefer the more collegiate experience.

SUMMARY: Microeconomics
This online course provides a foundation in microeconomic terminology, models, and analysis. The core ideas of supply and demand are developed and applied. In particular, how rational consumers interact in markets to maximize utility with firms seeking to maximize profits under different market structure is explored. The topics of elasticity, long run and short run choices, the impact and role of taxes and government intervention, and externalities on markets are treated.

The depth of the course is comparable to a one-semester, undergraduate course in microeconomics. Successful students will learn microeconomic concepts and how they are applicable in actuarial work.
The next Timeline format Microeconomics course dates are:
Course Dates: September 13, 2017 - November 7, 2017
Examination Date (Paper Exam): November 14, 2017
Final Examination Week (CBT Exam): 11/11 - 11/19/2017

SUMMARY: Macroeconomics
This online course provides a foundation in macroeconomic terminology, models, and analysis. How the macro economy is measured, tracked and modeled and the effects of fiscal and monetary policy on aggregate markets are covered. In addition, the topics of growth, inflation, unemployment, international trade, exchange rates, and the money market are treated.

The depth of the course is comparable to a one-semester, undergraduate course in macroeconomics. Successful students will learn macroeconomic concepts and how they are applicable in actuarial work.
The next Timeline format Macroeconomics course dates are:
Course Dates: October 11, 2017 - December 5, 2017
Examination Date (Paper Exam): December 12, 2017
Final Examination Week (CBT Exam): 12/9 - 12/17/2017
