The Graduate Certificate in Financial Intelligence and Technology is delivered by DCU Business School in association with IFS Skillnet and is designed for people who want to add modern financial techniques and innovation expertise to their existing finance experience.
This level 9, postgraduate programme is provided through online distance learning, which means that students can achieve a deeper understanding in a specialist area and provide a sound basis for their long-term career, without disruption to their career or other commitments.
This progamme comprises four stand-alone microcredentials, each worth 7.5 credits, which can be taken individually or as a block to achieve the Graduate Certificate.
IFS Skillnet is co-funded by Skillnet Ireland and member companies. Its aim is to support the financial services sector in maintaining Ireland’s position as a top international financial services centre, through ongoing investment in the development of the skills and expertise of this workforce. As such there are a limited number of places on each microcredential course available with IFS Skillnet funding.
One of these micro-credentials is the ‘Financial Machine Learning and Automation‘ module, taking place online over 9 weeks on a Wednesday evening, from 7pm – 8.30pm, January to April 2023.
Each microcredential will require a commitment of 3 hours per week for 9 weeks – 90 minutes of pre-recorded asynchronous material and 90 minutes of live class discussion, emphasising collaborative learning and interaction. Students should also allow for additional time for continued ready, group assignments etc.
Financial Machine Learning and Automation
This micro-credential develops knowledge of the techniques of machine learning to learn from financial data. Through the application of artificial neural networks, support vector machines, random forests, and gradient boosting, we will bring new levels of understanding to financial models. The machine learning techniques are applied to build, for example, asset pricing models, credit acceptance / rejection models, and fraud detection models. There will also be coverage of the practical issues of setting up secure data infrastructures for implementing these techniques in the firm.
The module is relevant to anyone wishing to acquire or deepen their knowledge of FinTech. Employees who might see the potential to introduce financial innovations, will particularly benefit.
