Fruitful collaboration between Wroclaw University of Science and Technology and Credit Suisse Poland in the area of mathematics and computer science resulted in the third edition of the Quant Scholarship Program.

The Program is targeting technical students from the field of mathematics, computer science, physics and engineering, interested in applying of their unique technical skillset at Quant Group within Credit Suisse

The main goal of the Program is to demonstrate how advanced mathematics and modern technologies are shaping the financial world, and how academic knowledge gained at WUST can be applied within the financial industry to solve real life problems.

What does Quant Scholarship Program offer: 

• 10 Completion Awards (5000pln) for students who qualify and comply with requirements

• 9 open lectures on functional programming and derivative products modelling

Supervised meetings with experienced Quants from CS Wroclaw

• Presentation of quant career path and employment opportunities for participants.
