I will soon be starting the Masters in Financial Analysis program at London Business School and I am looking for some advice tossset management.
I recently spoke to an MD attold me that "coding is the new English", he also mentioned that I should be able to use Python to do all the work that I would typically do on excel. In view of this should I study Machine learning and coding elective while pursuing my MSF?
I am currently working as a Data Analyst with The Economist Group, and my role is very quantitative. I do model building and use Python for developing forecasts. Keeping this in mind quantitative subjects won't be difficult for me. Do you guys think this experience will help me to break in the AM industry in London.
Please share any other tips/ suggestions that you might think will help me in securing a role as ain AM/IM. Thanks a lot!
