As part of a broader effort to advance our students’ competencies around technology, the Justin and Victoria Gmelich Lab for Financial Markets Workshops will offer training around data, coding and technology. To start, we will conduct foundational workshops centered around programming, financial databases and advanced excel usage, but we will regularly offer new programs that provide even more exposure to the areas that matter most for tomorrow’s jobs. Sample classes include: programming and coding, database training, advanced macro development, data analysis and more.  

Currently, there are no on-campus workshops available.

“As two former bond traders, Victoria and I experienced first-hand the importance of technology in capital markets and the growing need for students to be conversant in coding.”
