This program aims to prepare professionals for careers in quantitative investment management, financial risk management, portfolio management, financial software & systems, financial consulting services, etc. Even experienced risk management professionals who have the theoretical background of the risk management models, find their skills to be inadequate when it comes to implementing the models. For them having the theoretical background is not enough to actually implement these models in practice. This is why we have designed this course tailor-made for imparting these skills. This program is designed for people who want to move into risk management or derivatives valuations field and want to learn to develop applications related in these areas.

The course involves hands-on implementation of various risk and pricing models that are used in the industry. The purpose of this course is to give the students exposure to practical aspects of quantitative finance as they are applied in the industry.

This is an implementation-oriented course in which practicing Risk Modelers, Investment Bankers and Treasury Professionals teach the latest valuation techniques and risk modeling skills that are used in the industry. This course starts with learning basic tools and theories related to the field and goes on to learning implementation of valuation models of derivative instruments of various asset classes using the models being used in the industry and then learning to carry out risk analysis and implement various risk models for various asset classes.
