BUS-F432 Financial Data Analytics
This is the second course of a two-course sequence. It uses the programming language Python and related packages such as NumPy, Pandas, Regular Expressions, Matplotlib, among other tools. It teaches you to analyze live, real-world financial data in a variety of settings. Financial applications include textual analysis to large financial documents, identifying trader “sentiment” in Google search data, financial analysis of corporate SEC filings and disclosures, and back-test trading strategies, to name just a few applications. You will develop the skills necessary to both collect and prepare data for analysis.
