Course content

FinTech (financial technology) is disrupting and reshaping commerce. The term is applied anywhere technology is used to help companies manage the financial aspects of a business. It includes new software and applications, processes and business models.

In June 2017, Ernst and Young reported that FinTech had achieved initial mass adoption in most markets and will continue to gain momentum. In the UK, FinTech has been valued at around £7 billion by Deloitte, so it’s no surprise to see it in all major political parties’ economic strategies.

There’s never been a better time to build your expertise in this exciting and evolving area.

Understanding rapidly evolving financial markets

This course combines our expertise in finance, computing, risk and behavioural science. You’ll look at innovative technologies and the disruptive nature of FinTech business models.

We’ll show you how Fintech has combined finance and technology and is changing the way companies and consumers interact. You’ll also discover how it has affected the regulatory environment in which companies operate.

You’ll get to grips with different elements such as programming, business analytics, digital strategy, data science, strategy and risk in financial services.
