The MSc in Machine Learning for Finance is a unique, interdisciplinary programme which blends applied, practical financial theory with an advanced technical skillset derived from computer science.
The MSc in Machine Learning for Finance is the first, fully online programme of its kind in Ireland.
The programme leverages the experience, knowledge and expertise from the industry-led MSc in Artificial Intelligence. Combined with the award-winning finance postgraduate offerings in the Kemmy Business School, this programme provides a focussed upskilling initiative addressing widening AI skills shortage in the financial services industry.
With the financial services industry posited to become mass adopters of AI in the near future; this programme is aimed at those working in financial services, professional services and data analysis roles who wish to upskill and reskill to meet the considerable industry demand for applied technical skills combined with strong business acumen.
The programme is delivered primarily via recorded online lectures, supported with tutorials, assignments and live webinars. Assessment is based mainly on assignments and project work with a practical rather than theoretical focus. The focus is on asynchronous (flexible) delivery and assessment. All relevant course material (books, journal articles, etc.) required will be available digitally via the UL Glucksman Library’s online resources.
Modules will be delivered with an associated assessment of mastery so that semester by semester there is a confirmed and measurable achievement of learning objectives that can be transferred directly and immediately to the workplace.
There is 90 ECTs for the programme.
Employment-sponsored applicants may receive co-funding by the ICBE Advanced Productivity Skillnet.
