This course offers an introduction to programming for finance students without any previous programming knowledge. The goal of the course is to provide a broad understanding of the principles and techniques of programming for finance applications. Students will learn how to use “base” Python and the components of the SciPy ecosystem that are most widely used in the financial industry. The project-based, data-driven approach used in the course will improve students’ data analysis and programming skills, as well as their understanding of the modeling process, by providing a connection between the statistical and financial concepts covered in students’ other courses. By the end of the course, students will have acquired the experience and skill with programming to uniquely prepare them for future professional opportunities in finance.
