Corporate Partners

The MS in Predictive Analytics & Risk Management program welcomes all employers to visit UIUC to build industry relationships in this field. This program is in place to meet the needs of employers who are seeking professionals who have acquired the requisite knowledge from the curriculum offered by our program. The PARM program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum with courses in finance, actuarial science (including a course dedicated specifically to predictive analytics), risk management, and statistics. The program also offers the flexibility and focus to be completed in a year, and some courses can be completed online, which appeals to professionals currently working who are interested in this program of study to further their careers.
