ARPM collaborates in multiple ways with universities: we offer advanced study materials integrated with a learning management system to programs in quantitative finance, economics, engineering, physics, mathematics, computer science, statistics, data science.
Quant Bootcamp Academia
Your university’s Program can include the Quant Bootcamp (delivered onsite in New York and via live stream) in their degree program as an elective course.
- students in your Program attend in any or all of three formats:
- live stream, interactive
- onsite in New York
- on demand, recorded, with two-month access to study/practice materials in the ARPM Lab
- upon successful completion of the Quant Bootcamp, students in your Program earn:
- credits toward the completion of their academic degree
- Quant Bootcamp Certificate of Attendance
- 40 GARP CPD credits
Topics in Data Science and Quantitative Risk/Portfolio Management
Integrating your course(s) with ARPM's study/practice materials via our platform opens your Program to the most effective learning experience for the hard sciences. Your Program can offer one or more innovative, advanced course(s) to your students, as follows:
- your faculty, assisted by ARPM, designs a course, drawing from
- Data Science for Finance
- Financial Engineering for Investment
- Quantitative Risk Management
- Quantitative Portfolio Management
- your faculty moderates the flipped classroom and offers office hours
- your Program (or, optionally, ARPM) provides a teaching assistant
- ARPM provides the web-based self-study/practice materials, via our Lab
- ARPM provides the web-based environment to administer the course and report on the students' progress, via our LMS
Upon successful completion of the course(s), students in your Program earn:
- credits toward the completion of their academic degree in your Program
- an ARPM Certificate of Attendance/Completion
- continuing education credits with GARP
Learning Management System (LMS)
We have spent the past 10 years building our experience in teaching hard sciences online. We will bring your course to life on our platform, and train you on how to best deliver it to your students online, or onsite.
For a preview of our learning management system, please watch the brief demonstration video below. Please note that the video demonstrates the material, schedule and format of an ARPM course, but the LMS platform can be configured for any study materials, class schedule and class format.
ARPM provides both a cutting-edge e-learning management system and the method to use it effectively. This combination of platform and method makes delivering courses through ARPM superior to improvised combinations of off-the-shelf platforms and outdated methods.
Our platform not only provides an organized repository for your study materials and virtual classrooms for large group lectures and breakout sessions, but also notifications and reminders, communication tools including Q&A forums, and multiple progress tracking options. We track each student's class attendance and performance on homework, tests and quizzes, as well as how much time they spend studying the materials and even participating in the Q&A forums. All of this information is made available to both instructors and students via a detailed progress tracking interface.
Our method has been honed to maximize the effectiveness of the e-learning environment. We have developed a unique flipped classroom approach, with strict timing requirements. Students come to class prepared to discuss the materials rather than attempting to absorb new material during the lectures: we incentivize engagement before the live sessions by sending timed pointers and assigning portions of the course grading weight to work done before the live class. Classes are frequently split into small-group discussions to maximize participation. In these ways and others, we achieve results that are equal to if not superior to what is achieved with the traditional classroom approach.
And if your coursework happens to be in the areas of quantitative finance or statistics, we can also provide access to our content: we map your syllabus to our theory, case studies, and exercises; video lectures with matching slides; data animations and Python, MATLAB and R code that generate the practical case studies. We can even provide you with complete, off-the-shelf advanced quantitative finance courses.
Top universities around the world including New York University, Rutgers, Fordham, Jiaotong, and La Sapienza work with ARPM to deliver masters-level quantitative finance courses.
