On March 1, 2019, UBS, Bloomberg, and State Street Global Advisors launched "Girls Take Wall Street," an initiative that brings together 100-plus high school girls from KIPP NYC and Student Leadership Network’s Young Women’s Leadership Schools, to inspire the next generation of female leaders to consider careers in financial services. The day-long program is part of an effort by UBS, Bloomberg, and State Street Global Advisors to join forces in their commitment to supporting and advancing women and girls in business and finance.
This 30-session, graduate-level course covers a wide variety of topics in machine learning and statistical modeling. Its purpose is to help make valuable machine learning skills more accessible to people with a strong math background, including experienced software developers, experimental scientists, engineers and financial professionals. Participants will gain a deep understanding of the concepts, techniques and mathematical frameworks used by experts in machine learning. Successful completion of this course will deepen the course-taker’s ability to tackle the most compelling data science problems in business and society. It is taught by David Rosenberg, a data scientist in the data science group in Office of the CTO at Bloomberg (and a top-rated instructor at NYU's Center for Data Science).
