Cognitir Course: Intro to Python for Business and Finance

The amount of data available to organizations and individuals is unprecedented. Financial services sectors, including securities & investment services and banking, have the most digital data stored per firm on average. As a result, financial companies have been on an innovation and technology push to create new, disruptive technologies that can maximize use of these data assets to solve some of the industry’s toughest problems.

This one-day, hands-on course provides a structured teaching environment where students learn classic data science methods, which are used as the bases for many financial technologies. At the end of the workshop, course participants will have applied the Python programming language and essential data science techniques to solve complex finance problems.

Specific areas in finance where the data science skills acquired from this course can be effectively applied include: sentiment analysis, advanced time series analysis, risk management, real-time pricing and economic data analysis, customer segmentation analysis, and machine learning algorithm creation for financial technologies.

Attendees can use either a Mac or Windows computer for this workshop.
