FIN551 Python Programming introduces students to the use of Python programming in the financial context. Python has been used extensively in the financial industry because it is easy to learn and there are many available add-on packages for analysis purposes. The course introduces basic programming concepts and best coding practices through the extensive use of in-class demonstrations and hands-on practices. Students will learn to translate and implement business and financial logic into Python for business applications, and they can integrate their Python implementation together with APIs for real-time deployment. As software development is typically carried out in teams, students will also learn how to make use of GitHub for code review and project management.
