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.
