Bootcamp 33 – Data Science in Financial Services Bootcamp

There is 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 beginning 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 experts who start their careers over this period. 

Prospect 33’s Global Data Lab will give you the opportunity to take a deep dive into the full project life cycle and work in this complex domain & data environment to gain real-world experience and gain critical domain knowledge. This is not your typical training course; this is a real-world project training environment designed to overcome the critical challenge of preparing a group of junior data experts to become the leaders of tomorrow. 

Our program combines our deep domain knowledge with real-world data science solutions in an immersive three-month program. You will still have instructional sessions and mentors to lean on, however, the primary focus will be on a project that is a piece of a larger whole and defined at the time of the cohort’s start. 

You will be working on something that has not yet been done in the industry. We have an overall goal related to fighting financial crime, but the projects themselves are fluid and largely determined by the rest of the projects going on in the Lab at that time. You won’t have to work on those canned, boring projects like customer churn predictions; this is uncharted territory where you won’t be working on anything that you’d be able to find in another program.

Apply now to take part in our Introductory Bootcamp Day and continue to a full 3-month project. Successful graduates will become full members of our exclusive Global Data Lab, acknowledged across the world as being the best career accelerator in the industry of financial services, where you can continue to pursue projects or leverage connections to help in your future roles.
