SOA (Society of Actuaries) preparation course

The Tokyo International Actuary Academy offers a preparation course for SOA exam. 
For students or professionals wanting to become international actuaries, earning a Society of Actuaries qualification is much more useful than just completing the IAJ examinations.  The SOA designations are accepted by many countries worldwide for Appointed Actuary’s work.  Furthermore, in Japan, many foreign insurance companies have international actuaries in leadership positions – and recognize the passing of SOA examinations as an important career step.  Salary increases are often linked to exams completed.
The instructor in charge of our course will be bilingual.  Lectures will proceed in Japanese, as necessary, for Japanese students.  If a foreign student participates, explanations will be provided in English, as well.
For details, please see the course page.
