Program Features

The MCF program aims to attract a selected group of highly motivated and creative individuals who are interested in becoming world-class computational finance experts. The program is taught by the prominent faculty with PhDs from the leading international universities. As a group, they have, also, a significant experience from the top tier financial and consulting institutions. Teaching integrates programming in R and Python with the training in finance and quantitative methods.

Program Advisory Board consists of experienced quants with managerial positions in the leading financial institutions in the United States and Europe. Their goal is to ensure that the level and scope of knowledge that you receive is what it takes to succeed in the increasingly competitive global marketplace. Their time permitting, many of them are planning, also, to share, online or in person, their knowledge and experience with you.

Our cooperation with the Collegio Carlo Alberto from Torino (Italy), one of the leading centers of excellence in economic and finance research and education in Europe, is the first of its kind for the Collegio. Each MCF participant can, without additional cost, earn the Collegio's Master in Computational Finance certificate. For this, they need to attend two short (typically one-day) courses taught by finance professionals selected by the Collegio and participate in the Collegio's Career Day (both online). The certificate is recognized in Italy and worldwide. Please contact us if you need more information.

Last but not least, the curriculum incorporates a significant fraction of the CBOK Body of Knowledge required by the CFA Institute for candidates taking the CFA exams (Levels I to III). In addition, our program provides thorough preparation for the globally recognized risk management certification exams PRM and FRM . We anticipate our program participants to be very successful if they decide to take these exams.
