Over the last 5 years, private investment in Fintech companies globally has increased ten-fold to over $25bn in 2017, fuelling start-ups which are targeting the most profitable areas of traditional banking activities, while banks have been busy adjusting to the cost of an ever-increasing burden of regulations following the financial crisis. Through technology and nimble structures, digital disruption is driving the Banking industry to a tipping point that will forever transform it. Two centuries after the Industrial Revolution and only 30 years after Big Bang (deregulation of financial markets), join us to embrace the Digital Revolution coming to the world of finance!

This program is designed to prepare Masters graduates for a successful career in Fintech. But before you choose a hunting ground and decide to make your mark on the Finance industry, you will need to understand a few fundamental principles and learn the basic drivers of this increasingly complex industry.

A few pre-requisites will be necessary for admission. Talented applicants with strong technical and quantitative skills, combined with a personal drive not to settle for the status quo, will be able to fully benefit from this transformative course.

The first part of the curriculum will bring a thorough overview of the Financial Industry by focusing on the fundamental cornerstones which allow it to exist and function effectively. The second part of the program will focus on the technological developments which are disrupting and transforming the industry.

Throughout the course, special emphasis will be given to the practical applications of the topics covered through case studies and a hands-on project which will culminate in a presentation to a panel of experts helping you opening the doors to the Future of Finance.

    Responsible for corporate and product marketing, strengthening brand identity, the head of marketing is a natural “growth hacker” with a creative streak, in charge of developing the digital marketing strategy using the most effective channels available, including social media platforms.

  • You have to, to serve these markets, re-imagine how money can be managed and moved because there's going to be more change in the next five years in financial services than happened in the past 30
  • There are hundreds of startups with a lot of brains and money working on various alternatives to traditional banking
  • The part of Stripe that I've always found most interesting is the idea of facilitating new commerce that wouldn't otherwise happen. Payouts is turning out be a big part of that. These new networks are efficient, intelligent replacements for offline behemoths.
