New MSc in Quantitative Risk Management

September 2009 saw the launch of Heriot-Watt University’s new MSc in Quantitative Risk Management. Core components of this degree include two full-semester modules that cover the full syllabus of the UK Profession’s new ST9 exam.

Successful students will also be eligible for the new international enterprise risk management qualification, Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst (CERA) that the UK Actuarial Profession is closely involved with. Heriot-Watt professor Andrew Cairns contributed significantly to the development of ST9 in the UK and CERA at the international level. The first cohort of students will study the ST9 modules full-time, but parttime options will be available from 2010.
