Course content

The Financial Technology (FinTech) MSc is aimed at students who are looking to gain a broad yet thorough understanding of the financial technology sector. The course features an innovative and interdisciplinary curriculum that helps students to develop the relevant hard and soft skills they will need for careers in FinTech.

In addition to traditional finance and IT programming skills, it integrates both real business and practical blended knowledge within the FinTech landscape and the hottest trends in technologies within the disruptive financial sector.

The course is perfect for any student looking for a master’s level FinTech course which is not only focused on technical computing/software engineering, but also incorporates elements of entrepreneurship, innovation, regulation, marketing and business strategy.

Extended Professional Practice

This MSc course is now available with Extended Professional Practice. This 18-month option is aimed at students who are looking to develop a deeper understanding of business in a very practical way. You will undertake two Professional Practice modules which will take the form of either an internship with a host organisation, or a campus-based professional experience. Students are expected to spend twenty-two weeks at one (or more) work setting(s), and will have the opportunity to apply theory to practice. After completing the extended professional practice students are required to produce a substantial problem-based piece of individual written work.
