Actuarial or mathematical sciences as a major can have a big payoff!


2014 Bentley graduates who pursued actuarial careers were very well compensated with average/median base compensation of $65,000 – a 25% premium over the class average. An impressive ROI!

2015 seniors pursuing actuarial careers are also benefiting from strong employer demand with most having accepted offers prior to the winter break. Among the firms hiring this year’s class are The Hartford, Met Life, Liberty Mutual, John Hancock, CIGNA, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Prudential, XL Group, Guardian and Sun Life Financial.

Summer internship hiring remains equally strong with 50+ employers targeting math and actuarial sciences majors during the fall semester alone. To date, students have accepted internships with Aon Hewitt, PwC, MassMutual, Unum, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, Sun Life, The Hartford, Liberty Mutual, October Three Consulting, Travelers and John Hancock.
