A university education in actuarial studies and related areas prepares graduates for a wide range of careers. This study demonstrates that recent graduates working in the financial services industry make significant use of spreadsheet software. We found that all 76 respondents use spreadsheet software, and more than half spend at least 60%percnt; of their time using spreadsheets. Graduates also use a range of statistical, database, mathematical, financial, and actuarial software. This significant time spent in front of the computer has implications for universities wishing to design curriculum to prepare students for careers in the financial services industry.
