With the advancement of technology and Big Data, businesses are building more complex techniques and algorithms to identify credit risk. Using machine learning techniques, businesses are now able to build credit risk models which enable them to identify customers who are likely to be a credit risk. They can therefore make smarter credit decisions in a timely manner.

Who Should Attend?

If you are required to undertake business analytics projects or apply analytics and machine learning techniques for improved business processes and decision-making, this course is for you!

• Credit risk modelling analysts 
• Data analysts 
• Data engineers 
• Data managers 
• Financial analysts
• Machine learning scientists 
• Statisticians
• Technology professionals

This hands-on course uses Python programming for building credit risk models. Participants should be familiar with computers and basic statistics.


Participants will acquire the following skills at the end of the course:
