Oxford Algorithmic Trading Programme Testimonial Video

Interest in algorithmic trading has and continues to flourish as innovative technologies transform the sector. It’s more affordable, easier to control than standard trading, and gives traders the power to execute trades more rapidly in a fast changing market scenario.

The Oxford Algorithmic Trading Programme from Saïd Business School, University of Oxford equips you with a comprehensive understanding of the rules that drive successful algorithmic trading strategies and hedge funds. It also offers a grounded introduction to financial theory and behavioural finance. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll learn four key principles established by Programme Director Nir Vulkan, to guide you through the process of evaluating an algorithmic trading model.

Past participant on the Oxford Algorithmic Trading Programme, Vinicius Karam recounts his experience of learning online and how it helped him to set up his own quantitative finance firm in the video below.


By the end of the programme, you’ll walk away with the skills to:

  • Assess the efficacy of an algorithmic trading model within a real-world market environment
  • Develop and implement your own algorithmic trading strategies using the four key rules laid out in this programme
  • Understand how automation, AI, machine learning, and emerging technologies will impact the future of systematic trading

You’ll also receive guidance from leading industry experts and Oxford Saïd faculty, and access to the official Oxford Executive Education Alumni group on LinkedIn.*
