Bootcamp 33 – Data Science in Financial Services Bootcamp
Primary Location: New York, New York, US
Education: Bachelor’s Degree
Are you a skilled Data Scientist looking to Fast Track your career? Is your lack of real-world experience holding you back from getting the job you graduated for? Our clients are looking for Data Scientists with deep domain experience to reinvent the way banks handle, manage, model, and analyze their data.
There can be no doubt that banking and financial services represent the most complex data & domain environment in existence today. Due to a lost decade brought on by the financial crisis in 2008, today’s banks are only now starting their data journey. Over the coming decade the sector will change inexorably. The challenges of helping achieve this change will be led by an elite group of data scientists who start their careers over this period.
Bootcamp 33 will give you the opportunity to take a deep dive into the full project life cycle and work in this complex domain & data environment. You will gain real-world experience and gain critical domain knowledge. This is not a training course; this is a real-world project training environment designed to overcome the critical challenge of preparing a group of junior data scientists to become the Future Leaders of tomorrow.
Our program combines our deep domain knowledge with real-world data science solutions in an immersive three month program. During the project, you will work in our simulated cloud environment using the latest big data and data science tools and techniques to help solve real-world problems.
Successful graduates from our program become members of our exclusive group of Prospect 33 Future Leaders, acknowledged across the world as being the best career accelerator in the industry of financial services.

HOW DOES OUR PROGRAM DIFFER FROM OTHER BOOTCAMPS
Other Bootcamps are oriented toward teaching Data Science. Our program assumes that you have that knowledge. We have a high regard for some of the other programs out there, but (from what we’ve seen) none of the other programs out there (excellent as some are) even attempt to tackle the issues we focus on.
We passionately believe that the only way to be an expert data scientist is to have a deep understanding of the domain environment in which you work.
In Banking and Finance, this is more essential than in any other industry due to the complex nature of the highly regulated and massively broad spectrum of domain skills that make up the industry. In Capital Markets and Investment Banking, especially, Client Lifecycle, IBOR, Derivatives and Structured Financial Products, Trade Lifecycle, Compliance, and Risk are just a few of the areas to understand.
We focus on teaching you these essential skills and do so in the most productive way possible by running a real project to help solve real-world problems. Over the course of our 3-month program, you will be educated on a broad spectrum of essential domain matters to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the sector and are well prepared for your career in the industry.
This is not a data science course. We will not teach you the fundamentals of data science. You should know that already.
For those who do, we will make you a productive and well rounded professional with the right skills and knowledge to get your career started with confidence.
