Official qualification of PhD in Big Data and Quantitative Finance. Issued by the American University of Europe (UNADE) with agreement number 201841DBDDyFC and SEyC/DAJ/DRVOE/448/2017.
It is carried out in an integrated way with academic tutors and active Quant Traders, applying different techniques for the development and innovation of new strategies and investment models based on algorithms.
Through different artificial intelligence and data mining techniques, students will be able to detect and develop their own investment patterns.
Once the investment model has been detected, different optimization techniques are applied in order to understand in which markets, situations and configurations to use these models.
Steps to Production
Each development must go through different validation phases before being used in fund management. The transition to production is a key aspect in the success of the process, which must be carried out gradually.
CAREER AS QUANT TRADER
Although analysts are traditionally responsible for locating investment opportunities and providing them to traders and money managers, however, in recent decades and with an increasing trend, this work has been replaced by automatons and screeners based on artificial intelligence and Big Data techniques, which perform this work automatically and with greater and better results.
TRANSITION TO PRODUCTION IN A REAL ENVIRONMENT
Students of the PhD in Big Data for Finance are trained to perform the role of quant trader, carrying out the research phase under the tutelage of PhDs and professors who work in a multidisciplinary way with active quant traders who provide their services to regulated investment institutions. This allows the training to be of the highest level, with professional projection excellently remunerated and in high demand.
