The Data Science and Machine Learning for Asset Management Specialization has been designed to deliver a broad and comprehensive introduction to modern methods in Investment Management, with a particular emphasis on the use of data science and machine learning techniques to improve investment decisions.By the end of this specialization, you will have acquired the tools required for making sound investment decisions, with an emphasis not only on the foundational theory and underlying concepts, but also on practical applications and implementation. Instead of merely explaining the science, we help you build on that foundation in a practical manner, with an emphasis on the hands-on implementation of those ideas in the Python programming language through a series of dedicated lab sessions.

How the Specialization Works

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.

  • This course is completely online, so there’s no need to show up to a classroom in person. You can access your lectures, readings and assignments anytime and anywhere via the web or your mobile device.

  • This Specialization doesn't carry university credit, but some universities may choose to accept Specialization Certificates for credit. Check with your institution to learn more.

  • Approximately 4 months to complete

  • This digital Specialization program is meant to be self-contained and no prior knowledge or Python or portfolio analysis is assumed or required. On the other hand, learners are expected to show a good dose of enthusiasm for, and interest in, the subject of data science applied to investment management.

  • We encourage you to complete the whole series, starting with “Introduction to portfolio construction and analysis with Python” and “Advanced portfolio construction and analysis with Python”, before taking the “Python Machine-learning for investment management” course. Then,  you will be able to put  final touch on your understanding of how new data science techniques can be used in investment decisions by taking the course “Python machine-learning for investment management with alternative data sets”.

  • Upon completing the Specialization, learners will be able to build their own custom Python code and use existing Python libraries to optimize portfolios and implement sophisticated risk measurement and risk management techniques. They will also be able to use powerful machine learning techniques applied to traditional or alternative data sets to implement improvement investment decisions.
