Harvard College Quantitative Trading Club

Purpose Statement

The Harvard College Quantitative Trading Club ("HQTC") is dedicated to preparing students interested in the quantitative aspects of financial engineering for successful careers in the financial markets, particularly trading. The Club will function as both a classroom and networking ground, and actively seeks to connect members with trading firms seeking quantitatively-inclined students for both intern and full-time positions. Educational seminars on the fundamentals of financial products will give members a firm base of knowledge, while additional seminars on game theory, psychology, and other probabilistic topics will inform them of the necessarily pragmatic mindset of successful traders. The Club will host study groups and other events, including trading simulations and competitions, and will jointly host networking events with sponsors.
