Many times in finance, companies are tasked with analyzing historical data to better predict future outcomes, whether its to value a company, invest in a stock, or to better predict risk. Using Python and Machine learning techniques students can learn to better predict in a faster and more accurate way.
This course will begin with advanced Python and statistic topics such as object-orientated programming and regression models. After learning this first module, students will learn how to apply these concepts using real-world financial data by building a predictive returns model using regression.
The next section of the course will introduce students to important financial statements and ratios. After students learn these financial concepts, they will be introduced on how to pull data from these statements and compute these important financial ratios using Python.
After an initial analysis, students will cover more advanced financial modeling topics that measure present value, cost of capital, and the rate of return of an investment. Students will then apply those concepts using Python and Machine learning to build predictive financial models. After building these models, students will learn how to build out a budgeting model using only Python. Lastly, students will learn how to visualize their findings and export them into a PDF report, Excel file, or SQL database.
At the end of the course, students will feel comfortable making decisions driven by data analysis in Python. This course is perfect for anyone working in all areas of finance, risk management, reporting, general financial management, financial investments.
Very good course if you want to get into the details of python, data analysis and machine learning concepts. Plenty of time to exercise and try out the concepts at your own pace. Tim is a great teacher who is able to explain complex concepts in a simple way.
Excellent and enjoyable class! Art has a systematic method of teaching that allows for relevant tangents based on the interests of the class. We even spent an entire class on a project I had for work and from which the other students benefitted also. Art is great at focusing on the proper way to think (data types and data structures!) and the logic behind the code, as well as explaining all the concepts and syntax in a methodical fashion that builds well upon previous material. He is also 100% accessible outside of classroom hours for help/questions etc. I am continuing with many other Practical Programming classes. Highly recommend!
As one of our smaller courses, tuition for this course is due in full before the start date. The best way to save on this course is to take it as part of a certificate program.
There are no extra fees or taxes for our courses. The price you see on this page is the maximum you’ll pay us.
However, if you plan to take the course live online, you may need to obtain required software. We’ll help you get set up with a free trial of paid software prior to the class. Most of our coding classes utilize freely-available open-source software. For most of our design and motion graphics courses, we will help you get set up with a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud. If you attend the course in-person, we will have a computer already set up for you with all of the required software for no additional cost.
We don’t currently offer discounts as we do our best to affordably prices our courses.
Work on projects proven to boost retention
Refined over many cohorts for an optimal learning experience
I didn't expect to learn much in a 4 session Python course, but Art's teaching style was very fitting for me. As the Chinese proverb states: Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I'll remember. Involve me, I'll understand.

In this advanced course, you will cover the major Python financial libraries to gather and manipulate financial data. You will start by working with financial APIs to fetch financial, company, and economic data. We will analyze financial statements from the SEC website, including financial ratios derived from the income statement and balance sheet. You will build a risk management models using Python libraries to create VAR models and Monte Carlo simulation. We will learn how to apply statistical measures such as linear regression to financial uses such as stock prices.
Learn Python and boost your career with data science. You’ll learn the world’s most popular programming language through real-world dataset analysis. Manipulate data, learn how to make predictions, and gain the foundational skills you need to use Python on the job or start your data science career.
