What sorts of undergrad degrees would someone "typically" have when they apply into these courses?

What specific area of math/finance/stats would be of the most importance?

You would need the first two years of all math/statistics/economics courses, ie. things like multivariable calculus, continous statistics, macro & micro economics. Then take a bunch of junior/senior courses in your specialty. I would personally reccommend you have a weak real analysis course too, as this comes up in advanced economics. You don't need the level of rudin; any applied real variables course should suffice.

Actuarial science is a seperate field from most business programs and doesnt usually require a PhD. You get a bachelors, and do a series of exams which typically last for ~10 years instead of doing graduate schools. Quants are usually just math grad students or people who specialized in financial mathematics.
