Algorithmic trading was formed in the 1970s – the rise of machine learning and artificial intelligence has accelerated its advance substantially. Trading occurs at an incredibly fast pace, making it impossible for humans to keep up.

The programme covers:

  • what drives successful hedge funds
  • the methodologies used to model trading strategies for different types of financial markets
  • how to determine whether a fund is worth investing in based on key evaluation criteria


After successfully completing this highly interactive and supported online learning journey, you’ll walk away with:

  • The ability to illustrate the methodologies used to model trading strategies for different types of financial markets.
  • An understanding of the fundamentals of classical and behavioural finance and how theoretical trading models are applied in practice.
  • The ability to formulate a view on the relationship between emerging technologies and the future of systematic trading.
