At the start of your graduate program, VivCourt will provide ten weeks of in-class lessons with senior trading staff to introduce you to the theory of pricing, trading, and managing the quantitative strategies we use to trade across all markets and financial products. You’ll also be immersed in our culture and learn more about our business, including why we do what we do, how we work, and how you can contribute to our mission.
As you advance in the program, you’ll gain hands-on experience in real and simulated trading environments, shadowing different teams and participating in projects aligned with VivCourt’s strategic goals. Additionally, you’ll participate in regular revision and feedback sessions and be assigned a mentor to ensure your support and success throughout our program.
Following the ten weeks of in-class lessons, you’ll have the foundational knowledge to join a trading desk that best fits your interests and skill set. You’ll be able to have an immediate impact while receiving ongoing guidance over the next 12 months to help you forge a successful career in trading at VivCourt.
