The Financial Services sector is undergoing digital disruption, which is resulting in changes as radical as those brought about in other sectors by the likes of Amazon, Uber, Spotify and Airbnb. All participants in the Financial Services ecosystem such as banks, tech companies, suppliers, processors, regulators and investors need to understand the key technology drivers, how change is unfolding in different parts of the world and different sub sector, and the new ecosystem which is emerging.

Understanding fintech is relevant to all functions in an organisation including sales, product, marketing, technology, operations, risk, legal, finance and executive management and all need the same confidence in dealing with issues relating to fintech.

We are launching a Postgraduate Certificate in Fintech to support professionals and organisations with the skills, knowledge and insights they need to thrive in a rapidly changing environment.

Whether you're looking to move into fintech or digital banking, progress your fintech career or lead a start-up, this online Postgraduate Certificate is a unique online programmes that allows you to build and demonstrate your knowledge and skills - setting you apart from your peers. 

Taught by leading industry experts, the programme will help you: 

  • gain a sophisticated understanding of fintech and digital banking from a strategic perspective 
  • learn what's driving the digital revolution 
  • explore new business models, and look at the strategic choices available to both new and incumbent players. 

Join our webinar to hear from our experts and find out why fintech is for you!
