About the programme

Designed to equip you with the ability to identify opportunities for disruption in the financial services sector.

The orientation module begins on 26 February, however applications are accepted until 4 March when the first learning module is released. This programme enables you to both launch new fintech ventures and harness new technology to build better financial services firms.

You will learn:

  • to draft, strategise and develop disruptive fintech innovations
  • to hypothesise about the effect new regulations will have on future commerce products
  • about the future of money, markets and transactions
  • how to predict possible future trends in fintech, regtech and proptech

Industry experts believe that between 2 and 6 million jobs will be lost over the next decade due to disruptive financial technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and blockchain. Illustrating the potential disruption, digital challenger banks such as Starling and Monzo can operate with 90% fewer headcount than traditional banks. Secure your career in the face of rapidly changing financial technology.

Delivered in partnership with online learning provider, GetSmarter, you will be part of a community learning together through a dedicated online campus.
