Quantopian in the classroom is a program for professors to easily implement and encourage students to research, write, and test their own investment strategies.
The curriculum for this program has been vetted and incorporated by professors at universities such as Cornell ORIE and Harvard IACS and used to teach students ways to research, develop, and evaluate their algorithms. The curriculum includes a series of tutorials, lectures, and videos.
Once your students complete the curriculum and build their strategy, they can enter their algorithm into our daily contest. We keep track of their progress and send you a weekly report.
By competing in our daily contest, students will see how they stack up against their classmates as well as other quants from around the world. They will be eligible for the regular daily contest prizes and also specific student prizes, like a chance at an internship at Quantopian, a review of their algorithm by our research team, and more.
