Modern finance is complex, integrated and dynamic. To work in this challenging arena, financiers must master various skills to maximise capital, while successfully quantifying risk and responding to its implications.

The Banking & Fintech pathway focuses on financial innovation and Fintech, with particular emphasis on the impact of technological disruptions in the banking sector. This pathway will teach you how to critically examine and analyse the purpose, principles and fundamental concepts of today’s financial innovation and Fintech sector.

You’ll cover concepts such as financial innovation, cryptocurrency, cognitive computing, big data, the digital investment space and risk management in banking. The combination of formal learning and practical application will train you to become a financial player that can not only evaluate the risks of these concepts but also foresee and avoid the future threats to the industry.
