- The main difference is in the scope and depth of learning. While all are fueled by the ARPM Lab, the Quant Bootcamp Streaming provides a broad overview across all fields of modern quantitative finance; the Quant Bootcamp On-demand allows for a longer period of time to absorb this overview and work through the theory and case studies and the Quant Marathon delivers a masters level, in-depth knowledge of the same.
- The Quant Bootcamp caters more to people who want to understand the inter-relationships between the topics across theory and implementation, while with the Quant Marathon, you get mastery of topics across theory and implementation.
- The 2021 Quant Bootcamp will be delivered as an interactive streaming presentation. In-person attendance in New York will be available, conditions permitting. The Quant Bootcamp On-demand can be begun at any time and is a self-paced program. The Quant Marathon is delivered online and includes live sessions, so there are Spring and Fall terms that follow specific schedules.

(**) The availability of the Quant Bootcamp In-person in 2021 will depend on COVID-19.
