Many experts highlight the potential for Financial Technology (FinTech) to make finance more accessible for those most in need and the FinTech sector in emerging markets and developing economies saw particularly strong growth – as much as 40% in the Middle East and North Africa. Globally, finance apps alone were downloaded more than four billion times in 2020.
This has disrupted the banking and finance industry too – from international banks to back-room start-ups – and changed the way we handle money.
This innovative programme will provide graduates with in-demand quantitative and analytical skills necessary to embark on a successful career in FinTech or in the financial services sector.
The programme combines technology from big data and analytics, mobile computing and modern financial services, to enable better decision-making for organisations.
The required modules and an applied project will allow the student to gain a strong foundation of knowledge, as well as practical experience and the opportunity to tailor learning to meet individual career ambitions.
