This is an introductory course where computer programming is not required.  However, basic knowledge in financial valuation analysis and statistics will be useful.  The objective is to learn about the use of new technologies in solving business problems, and appreciate how current fintech trends will impact and shape the financial industry in the future.

Financing Technology Commercialization and Entrepreneurship

While growth of this sector is clouded by a potential slow-down of global economy, the more expensive financing costs from interest rate hikes, and more stringent regulations around digital assets, the trend of digitalization and digitization of the financial services will continue to grow at non-linear pace globally. The open innovation between non-financial industries and fintech innovators are generating exponential opportunities for those with an entrepreneurial passion.
