Course summary

About the course

Fintech (Financial Technology) is a concept which is rooted in technology and finance. It is used as a term which applies to disruption, innovation and efficiency in the financial sector. This has become possible through the use of technology which helps companies manage their activities in finance. These activities are underpinned by the introduction of distributed ledger technology also known as the Blockchain, Big Data analytics and data visualisation. These tools have acted as the catalyst for a significant amount of disruption in the financial services industry. To understand fintech is to have a good grasp of innovation, data management, visualisation, Blockchain and online business models.

This course at Huddersfield Business school brings together theory and knowledge from the fields of computing, financial theory, ethics and management science to give students an understanding of the innovative and disruptive challenges currently taking place in this environment. The course takes the view that companies are continually looking to develop competitive advantage, hence, our fintech course is an ideal programme which encourages disruption and forward thinking.

During the course you will investigate finance theories and their application and you will look at how technology such as the Blockchain and Big Data can inform innovation within financial activities. The course is designed to enhance the student’s understanding and develop their practical skills in the rapidly evolving financial markets.

The programme is supported with our state-of-the-art Trading Room which is equipped with professional software, providing up-to-date market data and financial analysis tools giving students a feel for how real investment decisions are made in industry and to learn how to deal responsibly with financial and economic market data. The Trading Room will give you an opportunity to experience what it is like to work in the financial industry, thus enhancing your experience and employability.

Further Study

Opportunities for course progression include the traditional PhD or a Master’s by Research; a one year, full-time research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component and is attractive if you want a briefer research-based degree or prepare for a full PhD.

Research plays an important role in informing all our teaching and learning activities. Through research our staff and students are contributing to the latest developments in their field. Our guiding vision is to conduct research that promotes excellence in management thought, innovation and application.
