Starting in Fall 2022, our quantitative research team will participate in the semester-long capstone project conducted in the Cornell Master in Financial Engineering program

Zug and Ithaca — Covario is sponsoring one of several capstone projects for the Fall 2022 semester at Cornell Financial Engineering Manhattan (CFEM).

Through this collaboration, graduate Financial Engineering students will gain hands-on industry experience by completing a research project guided by Covario’s quantitative research team.

Luis Fernández, Head of Quantitative Research at Covario, commented: “We are delighted to be a sponsor of this year’s capstone project. Along with faculty advisors of Cornell, we look forward to helping students experience first-hand the positive impact of when traditional mathematical and scientific skills are applied in the crypto space.”

Sasha Stoikov, CFEM’s Senior Research Associate and faculty advisor, added: “Our program has seen great results when replicating a real-life job environment for our graduate students. This would not be possible without the continuing support and mentorship of company sponsors such as Covario, and we look forward to seeing our Fall 2022 class immerse in the world of FinTech.”

The curriculum at Cornell’s Master in Financial Engineering program is career-oriented and innovative, allowing students to build out practical solutions rather than just the traditional research thesis.

The project, on the topic of making data-driven predictions for the crypto industry, will hone practical problem-solving skills as students work against real deadlines and deliverables under Covario’s mentorship and supervision. Students will work in teams and build out any software tools required to achieve their project goals.
