About Python Programming For Finance Course
Python is one of the most rapidly growing programming language and has become extremely popular with both professional programmers as well as other professionals who don't have prior programming knowledge but want to learn programming for use in their work. Python has a very rich set of libraries and that is rapidly growing. It being an easy to learn language and with the large number of library functions available withing it makes it very easy for people to get their work done with minimal programming effort. Lots of functionalities which are generally beyond the reach and abilities of many professionals coding it other languages are easily accessible in Python. So many complex problems in finance related areas can be easily solved using Python, which would otherwise require considerable amount of programming in other languages like VBA or C++. There is hardly any specialized course that teaches Python programming from basics with exclusive focus on writing programs for financial applications. This is why we have designed this course tailor-made for imparting these skills. This course is designed for people who do not have any kind of prior programming background and want to learn programming for developing applications related to finance.
The courses starts with learning the basic programming concepts in general and then learning programming using Python with specific focus on programming for high-end investment banking financial applications so that the candidates can relate their learning with their work.
You also learn actual financial modelling and implementations in Python for doing Monte Carlo Simulation and for pricing Equity Options.

What our learners have to say...
"I had enrolled for the CP-QFRM course at IIQF. It was six months of pure pleasure learning cutting edge, current market relevant Quant and Risk Management practises, philosophies and techniques. Brilliant team of lecturers coming straight from leading market entities in the Investment and Risk space. After completing this course I was able to successfully realise my desire to effect a career change towards Risk Analytics and Risk Modelling, after almost 13 years of experience. It has given me a successful start and also equipped me to consolidate my career as a result of hands on skills acquired. Not just CQFRM but other courses also I would say are very apt and highly recommended!!"
"The course on Financial Engineering that I attended at IIQF is one of the best courses available in the Indian market. Much more rigorous than CQF and more Quant Finance orientated than a CFA. It has a wonderful faculty most of whom are former PhDs from Stanford or Professors in Indian Statistical Institute (ISI). The course offers various insights and allows multiple programming languages. It allows Open book Testing culture which allows students to focus on applying the theory to very real problems. This course overall has provided me with a solid mathematical foundation, enabled me to understand how the theory translates to practical problems and finally to get a great offer in a equity quant research team."
"I had attended the Certificate Program in Derivative Valuations and Risk Analytics conducted by Indian Institute of Quantitative Finance. I was previously working with a Registered Investment Advisory (proprietary firm) as a Quantitative Analyst. This program is very relevant for risk professionals with a specialization in OTC valuations. The content of he course is very practical for various asset class derivative valuation models and the codes and resources of the model can be utilized to build a foundation for Derivative Valuation Modelling. Lectures are very interactive with its content being useful for python modelling from scratch and prepare for Valuation and Model Validation quant roles... "

"I am thankful to IIQF for helping me achieve my goal to move to quant risk role. What attracted me to Financial Engineering course at IIQF was the content of the program. It covered Mathematics, Machine Learning, Numerical Methods with Python modelling and helped me to move to Quant Risk role something I wanted to achieve."
"I had attended the Program in Derivative Valuations and Risk Analytics conducted by Indian Institute of Quantitative Finance. Before joining I was working with one the of broking firm for long time and was looking for change the field. IIQF's relevant & up to date program helped me a lot in sharpening my skills and getting desired profile at NOMURA. I would highly recommend this program for its content, which is very relevant for professionals in finance & risk. Additionally Nitish Mukherjee from IIQF has put in lots of efforts to share & recommend my profile to various organizations and finally I got opportunity to work with Nomura, where also my profile was considered after Nitish's personal recommendation."
"I recently pursued the certificate program in financial engineering course from IIQF. Structuring of topics was focused and also in order to enable one learn from the primary to the advanced concepts. Faculty members were very good and offered to assist at all points and covered the aspects of the curriculum in a concise manner. Primer for this course is very helpful for beginners as a prerequisite. The program as a whole was very nice and useful and all the faculty members were very good. My sincere thanks to all faculty members namely Edelbert, Rupal, Vivek, Ritesh, Srijoy, Ujwal."
"I had attended the program in Certificate Program in Derivative Valuations and Risk Analytics using MS Excel and VBA Programming for Finance by Indian Institute of Quantitative Finance. I would highly recommend for professionals in finance, risk and statistics. I have gained immensely from the program specially from Credit and Market Risk, got a job in Credit Risk Modeling profile in Mumbai due to this course and like to thank IIQF for the same. Special Thanks to "Abhijit Biswas" he was excellent, dedicated and very Knowledgeable. I wish them success in all their future programs."
"Overall experience in IIQF is just superb. IIQF is best as it provides quality education. I did the PGPAT course after completing my engineering. My experience at iiqf has given me a chance to sharpen my skills in my field of my choice ie algorithmic trading. I want to express my sincere thanks to nitish sir for your help in getting me placed. Nitish Sir took special care in convincing my prospective recruiter that I will fit in to required profile and I was successfully placed as python developer at Tesnatech Pvt Ltd. I didn’t realize the realm of your placement services until I stepped into your office. Needless to say,I was amazed at the abundance of opportunities that your institute provides. Thank you for your tremendous help!."
"Thanks a lot IIQF and the lecturers. PGPFE course helped me in moving to Semi Quant team internally. Lectures are very informative and covered wide range of complex topics building from fundamentals to very advanced levels. Very refreshing experience."

What qualifications are needed for this program?
This course is intended for those who have no prior programming experience and wish to learn programming in order to create apps for the financial industry. The purpose of this program is to teach Python in a simple, understandable, and organised manner so that anyone, regardless of technical or programming background, may learn and utilise the language. The basic prerequisite will be English proficiency in both written and spoken form, basic statistical knowledge, an internet connection and working knowledge of Excel. We use a Windows-based platform to teach. Windows must be installed on "Parallels Desktop for Mac" for Mac users.
Can non-programmers use the program?
There is no doubt that someone will have an edge if they have prior programming experience. However, this course has been created to teach Python in a simple, understandable, and systematic manner so that those with no prior programming or technical knowledge can learn and utilise the Python language. Therefore, having no programming experience is not an impediment as long as one is motivated to learn and is willing to make the necessary serious and sincere efforts.
