Course content

Financial technology is a truly disruptive force, with an impact that reaches far beyond the financial sector and into our everyday lives. From international money markets to online shopping, it’s transforming the world as we know it. This course is a chance to examine and harness that power, not only equipping yourself for a career at the cutting edge, but also ensuring you have the skills to stand out in a fast-changing business landscape.

As an online, stackable course, this offers huge flexibility. You’ll not only have the choice of when and where to study, but also how far you want to take it. So, while you’ll explore leaps in technology, innovative business models, digitalisation strategies and the digital leadership needed to deliver them, that could just be the start.

From there, you can stack up more units, building on your knowledge with increasingly advanced areas like programming, machine learning or blockchain, by continuing on to a diploma or even a masters qualification.

While it’s a course focusing on the innovation of finance and the wider world, it’s also about an opportunity to work on a more personal transformation, with brighter prospects and faster progression in your career.
