Course Categories

Academy courses are grouped into Course Categories (this grouping is purely for convenience, each course can be undertaken individually). Courses within a category will typically cover the same domain (e.g. Concentration Risk) or focus on a particular skillset (e.g. development of risk models using python)

A full category list with descriptions / motivation is available below or directly at the Academy
