I have been discussing with some potential academic partners the concept for a new graduate program in High Frequency Finance. The idea is to take the concept of the Computational Finance program developed in the 1990s and update it to meet the needs of students in the 2010s.
The program will offer a thorough grounding in the modeling concepts, trading strategies and risk management procedures currently in use by leading investment banks, proprietary trading firms and hedge funds in US and international financial markets. Students will also learn the necessary programming and systems design skills to enable them to make an effective contribution as quantitative analysts, traders, risk managers and developers.
I would be interested in feedback and suggestions as to the proposed content of the program.
