Objectives

Python for Financial Management is the second week of the Summer School in Python for Finance.

The aim of the Summer School Python for Financial Management is to help students develop an understanding of how Python may be an essential tool when interpreting financial data using a theory into practice approach by introducing interactive lab sessions and company visits. During this Summer School week students will develop a proficiency with relevant software and programming languages for complex data analysis tasks with finance applications. Participants will also be able to demonstrate the ability to source, process and clean complex data from a variety of sources. These topics will be explored further during the Level I Master in Financial Management – Major in Corporate Finance.
