WorldQuant University is an accredited leader in global education for data sciences. We deliver entirely free, online programs that expand access to studies and credentials in data sciences.
The mission of WorldQuant University is to make advanced, quality education accessible to capable students by delivering entirely free online programs.
Education is most effective when educators, employers, and students work together to create pathways for mutual success. Technology makes advanced learning locally available across geographies and enhances outcomes by connecting capable candidates and prospective employers.
With student enrollment in more than one hundred countries, our MSc in Financial Engineering Program and Applied Data Science Lab deliver rigorous curriculum developed by domain experts. From anywhere in the world, students are guided by professionally experienced faculty to develop the high-level quantitative and data-driven skills in high demand across industries.
WorldQuant University is U.S.-based, and accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC).
Every major industry is growing its soft-quant and hard-quant workforce. With every passing year, more employers want job applicants with data science and analytics skills. We can’t educate qualified people fast enough.
We’re using financial engineering and data science education to build multidisciplinary strengths students can apply to their future careers.
There are many obstacles to inspiring the next generation of data-driven experts. Cost shouldn’t be one of them.
Our offerings are entirely free. We are committed to helping the most capable students advance themselves and improve the world through data science.
A recent WorldQuant University graduate told us “I became the first woman in my family to become a ‘Finance’ graduate at no extra costs, thereby opening up windows of opportunities in my career!”
Our offerings currently serve students from over 140 countries all over the globe.
STEM education focuses on solving real-world problems with math and science. WorldQuant University takes that a step further. We think critically and collaborate with people from other cultures. You learn to think flexibly and learn from other people’s perspective.
The MScFE Program not only made me excel in the area of quantitative finance, but also bolstered my career opportunities with very special skills like machine learning, statistics, algorithms, and portfolio management.
Being able to speak with somebody who has real trading experience was a big benefit of the Program. Not only did he talk about markets in general, but he even gave us ideas from algorithms he personally created and used successfully as a trader.
I would also like to thank WQU and your team for offering such wonderful education at zero cost. On top of knowledge, I've also gained very valuable soft skills such as resilience and perseverance from this course.
Our leadership, instructors, and advisory board are made up of leading financial engineering experts, industry executives, and educational technology innovators.
