Course summary

Overview

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.

Course information

On the MSc Financial Technology (FinTech) course, you will learn how to navigate the ever-changing world of FinTech – a world fuelled by constant technological advancements and cutting-edge innovations.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have been given the chance to learn everything you need to start a prosperous career in financial technology – equipped with a fundamental skillset that is in high demand in the FinTech industry. Not only should you have a strong understanding of traditional finance and IT programming (such as Python), but also a well-balanced critical awareness of macroeconomic, ethical and regulatory constraints and knowledge of the hottest industry trends.

In your second semester, you will be given the choice between two ‘pathways’ – Innovation and Enterprise and Quantitative Finance. Innovation and Enterprise will give you a chance to develop your leadership and management skills, which will be vital if you choose to start your own FinTech company. Quantitative Finance is for anyone who wishes to focus on the more financial and technical aspects of the industry.
