On Wednesday 24th December 2008 the third year students of the Actuarial Science and Risk Management (ASRM) program at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) visited Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM). They were given a briefing on career opportunities for ASRM students at BNM. According to the speaker, graduates in ASRM can apply for employment at BNM throughout the year. They must obtain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 before they can be considered for selection. This is an opportunity for students who are interested in a career at BNM and for those who are still below the qualifying requirements of 3.0, they can start improving their grades from now - they still have two semesters of coursework to improve their grades.
BNM is a very good employer and has excellent facilities for their staff. Their requirements for graduates in actuarial science and risk management could be met by ASRM students from USIM.
At the end of the visit students were treated to a nice tea and cakes at the executive cafeteria.
