Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course enables participants to gain further experience in Python and its applications in Finance. It is expected that students have prior knowledge of Python equivalent to the contents of Python for Finance I. Participants get to know and apply methods from machine learning and natural language processing, with a focus on practical applications of these methods. Students learn to gather textual data from different internet sources, clean the data, and process the data to produce quantitative measures that might be relevant for a task (e.g. an investment strategy). Subsequently, this data and other standard finance data sources are used as inputs to machine learning methods. Besides these specific methods, students will also gain further general knowledge with respect to Python programming and managing a programming project.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The grade will be based on homework exercises that participants are expected to present in class, class participation, and a course project in which students apply the methods learnt in the course.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

60% homework exercises
10% class participation
30% course project

Minimum requirement for a positive grade: a total of 50%.
