Master of Science Financial Technology (Fintech)

MSc Financial Technology (Fintech) aims to give you the knowledge and skills required to work in the new and emerging fintech sector. Many fintech companies are small start-ups so business and entrepreneurial skills are important.  Fintech is a disruptive technology, bringing great changes to the ways that banks and insurance companies operate. You’ll be taught innovation management techniques to immediately make a difference in any organisation or company you work for.

 Of course, Fintech is also about technology and our graduates will be able to design and implement software applications that will take advantage of the new open banking regulations. You’ll also have the data analytics and machine learning skills required by new data driven models of financial services provision.

The course is delivered via lectures, seminars, workshops, business games and independent study. This will be supported through:

  • A learning environment which fosters debate;
  • Modules which encourage students to critically assess theory and practice with a view to creating new concepts and practices for the future;
  • Projects which offer practical application of theory to support learning and increase employability.
