What's The Catch?

What's The Cost?

  • Because it's a win-win for both firms and students. For top firms, sourcing quality talent from a range of backgrounds is a costly and time-consuming endeavor. They often face sifting through thousands of applications, with many candidates lacking practical industry knowledge.

    On the other hand, students apply to numerous firms with limited means to showcase their abilities, regardless of their academic excellence. Echios EDU's bootcamp bridges this gap, providing a platform for students to stand out and demonstrate their true potential.

  • As an esteemed training partner to top firms, Echios EDU has garnered industry-wide credibility. Completing the Echios EDU bootcamp serves as a prestigious badge, attesting to the exceptional skills of its graduates. This demonstration of competence instills confidence in employers regarding candidates' practical understanding of finance and technology applications. By showcasing this achievement, you can fast-track your way through the traditional application process and break free from the age-old "No Experience, No Opportunities" paradox.

  • Echios EDU is primarily a training company. We run the global training programs in 8 of the top 10 investment firms in the world. Because of this we know exactly the skills that hiring managers are looking for in candidates. This has garnered Echios trust within the industry. Echios EDU gives this training to graduates and allows us to connect you to the industry. Think of us like a recruitment agency with the super power of training you on topics that firms want you know.
