Point72 Launches Next Generation Data School to Teach Data and Automation Skills

August 2022

Point72 launched a new program, the Next Generation Data School, to teach data and automation skills to employees in groups across the firm, including Finance, Operations, Regulatory Reporting, Recruiting and Tax. The program aims to give employees more technical tools and skills that they can use to help better utilize our data and improve our systems and processes, while also supporting their career development.

The Data School kicked off in August with a group primarily based in our Warsaw office and will continue to expand across our global offices. The nine participants in the first cohort will attend one course module per week for four months, covering topics like advanced data analysis in Excel, SQL, process automation using Alteryx, and data visualization, led by subject matter experts here at Point72. Along the way, students will have the opportunity to practice and solidify new skills, culminating with presentations on a final project in November.
