Price: € 1,400PresentationThe main objective of the course is for all participants to obtain the ability to work independently in the field of quantitative finance, being fully prepared to take the master's degree in Artificial Intelligence Applied to Financial Markets.MethodologyAll sessions will be focused with 100% practical content.
Students will obtain real programming skills in R and Python through different practices that will be carried out during the sessions.
It is essential to attend the course with your own laptop. No special requirements are necessary on this computer. Any laptop with a standard configuration and features is valid.Important registration informationFrom Instituto BME we want to offer all possible facilities to facilitate your attendance to the sessions as much as possible. For this we have introduced a series of novelties that will allow you to make the follow-up of this course compatible with your personal circumstances.
This year, to the development of the course in face-to-face format, we added the flexibility of being able to attend the sessions VIRTUAL by broadcasting them via live streaming. In this way, the student who, due to professional or personal circumstances, cannot attend a session will not lose the continuity of the course.
This circumstance also offers an added advantage for all those professionals who reside outside of Madrid and who have difficulties to attend since they will be able to register for the course in virtual format without having to travel.
If you are interested in taking advantage of this modality, indicate that you must include the following code when formalizing the registration: " VIRTUAL "
The number of places in face- to- face format is limited to 16 and they will be filled according to a criterion of order of enrollment in the course.
Furthermore, if you are interested in taking only one of the 3 modules that make up this course, we offer you the possibility of registering individually. The following are the possibilities of enrollment in the course:
Enrollment in the full course with assistance to the 3 modules identified in the Program. In this case we offer a 10% discount. Use the code: " COMPLETE " at the time of registration. IMPORTANT: The aforementioned 10% discount on the full rate will be applicable only in case of card payment.
For those who are interested in attending a specific module, it is possible to register individually in the module that is of interest to them. This mode will only allow enrollment in one of the available modules. Below is the individual price of each of the modules as well as the code that is necessary to use during the registration process:Enrollment in Module 1 - Introduction to Visual Basic for Finance: Price: € 325 - Code: SOLOVB
Enrollment in Module 2 - R Programming Fundamentals: Price € 505 - Code: SOLOR
Enrollment in Module 3 - Python Programming Fundamentals: Price € 890 - Code : SOLOPYAddressed toThe course is aimed at all those who wish to know the possibilities of these programming languages and their direct application in solving problems in the financial sector.
In the professional field, it will be especially useful for Graduates in Economic Sciences, Business Administration and Management, Statistics, who carry out their activity:Departments of financial companies related to investment management.
