WorldQuant has partnered with Cambridge-based Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a leader in the field of quantitative finance, on several initiatives to benefit the MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS), its students and its faculty. The partnership consists of joint initiatives including IDSS, Hubweek and MIT Solve.
- IDSS advances education and research through analytical methods in formation and decision systems.
- HubWeek is a celebration of innovation at the intersection of art, science and technology that fits well with WorldQuant’s business initiatives such as Solve-a-thon, a quantitative finance contest that allows candidates to use web-based technology to build algorithms for stock-price movement prediction.
- MIT Solve embraces the “learn” pillar of Solve’s four-pillar problem-solving program by providing high-quality, tuition-free education through WorldQuant University.
