The learners can explore the power of Python and Machine Learning in Investment Management throughout the 4 following courses:

  • Introduction to portfolio construction and analysis with Python
  • Advanced portfolio construction and analysis with Python
  • Python machine learning for investment management
  • Python machine learning for investment management with alternative datasets


The programme gives online learners a solid foundation in data science and the methods of calculation used in the investment sector, with a focus on the latest advances in portfolio management. At the end of the four courses, participants have the tools they need to design and implement effective investment strategies, having deepened their knowledge of the theoretical concepts and studied numerous practical case studies based on real-world situations.

This very hands-on approach blending Python coding skills and their application in the world of finance is the reason for its success.
