Lantern Institute provides graduates of STEM fields fast-tracked training to transition them into a fulfilling career in new emerging fields such as Data Science and Mathematical Finance. Our programs are unconventional, employing instructors who actively work in industry to teach our students the skills currently demanded by the market. Our tuition fee structure is even more unconventional. Given our proven record of successful hiring, students only pay full tuition fee if they secure a job. To enroll, qualified applicants only pay a refundable deposit, which is returned to them when they secure employment. For more information attend one of our info sessions.

Through our Confidence Credit plan, qualified applicants do not need to pay for our programs until they secure jobs (with the exception of a refundable deposit). We believe that our students should not have to pay for our programs unless they are proven to help them find employment.

Instructors from Industry

The instructors of our advanced modules are industry coaches, who actively work in industry and design our curricula based on the activities of their employers. Fundamental concepts in statistics, mathematics, and programming are taught by instructors with a technical academic background, providing you with the best of both worlds.

The Challenge

With the rapid changes in technology that numerous industries are undergoing due to the increased application of computational and data analytics, the demands of employers are changing. These changes at a much faster pace than that universities can update their curricula. As a result, university graduates struggle to find jobs they are qualified for, and employers struggle to find qualified professionals to hire.

Our Response

Lantern Institute bridges the gap between universities and the job market by training university graduates in the skills that employers demand most. With help from our partner finance, IT and recruiting firms, we then connect the graduates we train with employers in need of personnel with the skills we teach.
