IBF Masterclass with Vertical Institute: Python and Data Science for Finance

22 August 2022

"Singapore tech salaries may soar up to 30% within 2 years. Technology-sector salaries in Singapore are set to soar in the next couple of years amid a hiring boom particularly in finance." - The Straits Times. 

Similarly, Randstad sees salaries rising 25% to 30% amid demand for data analysts and data engineers.

Why such a high demand? It’s because companies that dominate today’s business landscape are those that leverage on data-driven decision making. They use data science and analytics to study trends and identify new market opportunities that lead to smarter business moves with a high probability of success.

Python is the most popular data science language in financial services to process and analyze big financial data. Join us for this session and learn why Python programming is one of the most sought after skillsets in today's digital economy, and why financial institutions and top companies are aggressively hiring for these skills.
