As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Certificate in Quantitative Finance (CQF), we are excited to introduce our 40th cohort of delegates to graduate from the program.
Awarded by the CQF Institute and delivered by Fitch Learning, the CQF was created 20 years ago by Dr. Paul Wilmott to bridge the gap between academia and industry. That’s why the master’s-level, online program focuses on teaching not just the theory of models and methods, but also the practical implementation of the latest quant finance and machine learning techniques used by professionals working in the field. This ensures all delegates graduate with both a comprehensive theoretical knowledge and have the desk-ready skills they need to confidently apply their new knowledge to real-world scenarios at work. All CQF alumni can also keep their skills competitive throughout their careers with permanent access to the Lifelong Learning library.
Managing Director of the CQF Institute and CQF, Dr. Randeep Gug, stated:
I am very proud to introduce our newest CQF program graduates. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the program and it is fantastic to see the same appetite for continuous learning, innovation, and practical skills in the new, ambitious professionals coming through the program today. We are excited to welcome our newest graduates to our global alumni community and look forward to seeing what each of them go on to do in the future.
