directeur de programme

The Financial Markets and Trading course meets the expectations of recruiters looking for expert profiles in the digital transformation of banks

“This program prepares you to become experts in the fields of asset management, trading and risk management: Equity Analyst, Fund Manager, Oil Trader, Sales, International Treasurer, RCCI and Middle Officer are some examples of positions held by our alumni.

The teaching is resolutely quantitative (computational, statistical and digital), and covers the foundation of modern finance but also the latest developments: FinTech, Smart Contracts, Big Data, stochastic simulations, fractals, behavioral finance, Excel and VBA and the R language.

Students are made aware of innovative techniques and are regularly put into practice on the basis of real cases, thanks in particular to the presence of a Bloomberg trading room within the school.

With over 15 years of experience, this program has a network of over 500 alumni.

Passing the AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers) certification is scheduled during the program, and further development on the Bloomberg tool continues after validation of the level certification, the BMC, Bloomberg Market Concepts, in MSc1.”
