Course summary

Overview

Financial Technology or FinTech is here to stay. For those seeking a career in financial services, or already experienced, the challenges and opportunities offered by recent global technological enhancements are profound.

Programme overview

This programme is neither exclusively quantitative or qualitative in nature, but rather has been carefully designed to provide you with a robust understanding of the commerciality as well as technological underpinnings of this evolving and multifaceted space.

The MSc Financial Technology will provide you with expert knowledge of both the academic and commercial aspects of this new world. We aim to future-proof your learning and employability across fields such as blockchain, digital banking, the future of global payments, cryptocurrencies, digital business strategy, big data, LawTech, programming with Python as well as the future of management.

Notwithstanding the above fields of study, you will receive rigorous training in research methods, ethics and, quantitative methods for managerial accounting and finance. You will have the opportunity to culminate this learning in your final dissertation at the end of the programme which may take the form of an academic empirical piece of work of your choosing, or instead be entrepreneurial and applied in scope through collaboration with companies already operating in the FinTech industry.

Career prospects

The MSc is designed to support career entry and development in the financial sectors in the world financial markets, government agencies, international financial agencies and higher education, amongst others. Some of our recent graduates now work in AEG, PwC, Bank of China, and the NHS.
