About the fintech practicum
The primary objective of this special-topics course, titled “Fintech Practicum,” is to learn to solve real-world financial problems in a professional setting. The course is designed to be similar to the Data Science Capstone (DS 180) or Harvey Mudd’s CS Clinic but focused on Finance.
Students will work in teams of 3-5 on a project sponsored by an outside company. All projects have been sponsored by a CMC alum working at the partner companies. Students will collaborate with the client / liaison at the company and will be guided throughout the semester by a faculty advisor.
Students and their teams will leverage their knowledge of economics and finance as well as their expertise in coding, econometrics, mathematics, and statistics (among other things) to work on these projects.
