A recent student said: “I loved the program. The first 3 projects were very basic, but everything after project 4 was great. You get introduced to alpha research, portfolio optimization and backtesting. In some of the projects you use Zipline, Quantopian’s open source library.”
There are a number of benefits to learning online. Students can improve their skills and enhance career possibilities while learning at their own pace from the comfort of their own home.
