Learning Outcomes

  • Study the fundamentals of Python 3 programming with a focus on finance for data science and machine learning.
  • Learn how to use Python’s power to apply important financial concepts like computing daily portfolio returns, risk, and Sharpe ratio.
  • Recognize the underlying logic and theory of the capital asset pricing model (CAPM).
  • Learn how to use important Python libraries, such as NumPy for scientific computing, Pandas for data analysis, and Matplotlib/Seaborn for data plotting/visualization, in Jupyter Notebooks for creating, presenting, and sharing data science projects.
  • Learn how to use real-world datasets to develop, train, and fine-tune machine learning models using the SciKit-Learn library.
  • Use machine and deep learning models to find solutions to current issues in the banking and finance industries.
  • Recognize the concepts and principles underlying a number of machine learning methods for grouping, classification, and regression.
  • Use a variety of KPIs (key performance indicators) to evaluate the performance of trained machine learning regression models.
  • Use different KPIs, such as accuracy, precision, recall, and F1-score, to evaluate the performance of taught machine learning classifiers.
  • Recognize the underlying theory of long-short-term memory networks, recurrent neural networks, and artificial neural networks (ANNs).
  • Train Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) using back-propagation and gradient descent algorithms.
  • To improve network performance, optimise ANN hyperparameters like the number of hidden layers and neurons.
  • Learn feature engineering and data cleansing techniques for applications in machine learning and data science.

Featured Review

Dumitru Constantin (5/5): Very good, it takes you through the basics and with growing complexity! Attractive and fulfilling its promises!


  • Kehinde Temitope (5/5): This tutor is the best teacher I have ever seen on Udemy.
  • Yashar Soleimani (5/5): The instructor is literally one of the best teachers i’ve seen and he teaches everything with a lot of details
  • Abhay V Deshpande (5/5): Very happy to be a part of Udemy and Learning the Machine Learning course.
  • Karim Mohamed (5/5): I did not try it still but i feel it is one of the best courses i have ever seen


  • Ola Kenji Forslund (1/5): *Does something complicated* “I know it looks complicated but don’t worry guys, it is not.” – Lecturer *Moves on with the lecture without explaining*
  • Lim Shan Zhi (1/5): **To all future students/current students of this course!!!** LSTM section is really awful, teaching how to predict stock prices with leaked data?
  • Harish Patil (1/5): He has trouble with building an LSTM and used a sequence length of 1, so the results of his stock prediction are useless.
  • Daniel Baptista (1/5): I don’t feel this course is worth taking if you are serious about finance or even if you are a beginner because it’s going to teach you bad habits and concepts that are just wrong.
