Or is the actuarial profession best pursued by taking math courses in college and writing exams in college?
For those of you working in the actuarial field, just how useful is the knowledge of finance and accounting and economics in your everday work?
they are all useful, i would recommend a minor in econ. and a semester of financial accounting. Also Corp. Finance
