The thinking behind the programme
There are no other standard courses in this subject in the world. The programme has been designed in collaboration with the Oxford MAN Institute for Quantitative Finance to provide a pragmatic, non-technical exploration of the world of algorithmic trading, demystifying the subject.
The programme is based on the four principles established by Programme Director Nir Vulkan, to guide you through the process of evaluating an algorithmic trading model. Participants will benefit from the latest insights of both financial experts and behavioural specialists drawn from across the University of Oxford and the investment industry.
Utilising Oxford’s unique blend of AI, Behavioural and Finance specialisms, the programme comprehensively explores both the human and technological factors of this rapidly evolving area, putting participants at the forefront of available learning.
Babak Mahdavi-Damghani, Consultant at EQRC and doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, shares an insight into the programme and the online learning experience.
