How do I become an actuary?
I'm looking to change my career and possibly becoming an actuary. I have some financial experience working in the banking industry, and I have a Bachelors Degree in Economics with a Quantitative Analysis emphasis. What would I need to do to become an actuary? Would I need to go back to school and get another degree, or can I get by with just taking a few classes I can take before taking the exams? Any insight would be most helpful!
