DataArt Sponsors Cornell University Financial Engineering Event
DataArt sponsored a Meet and Greet Wall Street Reception for financial engineering students at Cornell University's School of Operations Research and Information Engineering. The event provided ample opportunities for graduating students to mingle with executives from top Wall Street firms.
The dynamic keynote speaker for the evening, Victoria Averbukh, Head of Structured MBS Strategy at Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (and a former classmate of Eugene Goland at NYU), addressed key points on what it takes to succeed as a quant analyst.
DataArt's participation in the event is one of the steps in building a financial engineering internship program at its New York headquarters, and further expansion into quant analytics. Other recruiters in attendance included Bear Stearns, UBS, Bank of America Securities, CitiGroup, JP Morgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, American Express and Bank of New York.
"DataArt stands at the frontier of major changes in ecosystem, technology, and business practices of Capital Markets Industry,” said Anatoly Altshuler, DataArt Board Advisor. “To cross the frontier and "join the battle", we need partners who share DataArt' conviction in the role of high science & technology in progressive changes, and at the same time compliment our “industrial” strength with strongest credibility and thought leadership. Cornell’ Manhattan is unique in that regard."
