This VEE Microeconomics course topics provides: 

  • Foundation in microeconomic terminology, models and analysis
  • Core ideas of supply and demand are developed and applied 
  • How rational consumers interact in markets to maximize utility with firms seeking to maximize profits under different market structure is explored
  • The topics of elasticity, long run and short run choices, the impact and role of taxes and government intervention, and externalities on markets are treated.

The depth, pace and structure of the course material is comparable to a one-semester senior undergraduate course in Microeconomics.

Assessment: The final grade is based on four assignments, and a final exam. The assignments questions are multiple choice, constructed to help students verify that they have achieved all of the learning objectives. Students may complete the assignments at their leisure – anytime before the final exam is written.

Final Exam: The final exam is a comprehensive, two-hour, closed-note and closed-text exam. Exam questions are multiple-choice, similar in substance to the assigned practice and graded homework problems.

Proctors: Students are responsible for finding a proctor. Students can choose to use our online proctoring service, ProctorU (details below), or find an outside individual. Exam proctors must be approved by ACTEX. Acceptable proctors include:

  • Credentialed actuaries
  • CFA or a member of management unable to sit for exams, such as an HR manager or university professor
  • The proctor and candidate may not be related

If you have selected CBT Final (computer-based test) the instructions will be emailed to your proctor (see Student Responsibilities below).

Individuals with disabilities are eligible to receive necessary testing accommodations. Please contact prior to registering for this course if you require an accommodation.

Students are allowed to use SOA approved calculators.

Computer-Based Test (CBT) Final Exam: ProctorU
