New Masters in Fintech at Strathclyde

19 Jan 2017
A new Masters in Financial Technology (Fintech) is launching at the University of Strathclyde, to support the digital transformation of Scotland's financial sector.
The MSc in Financial Technology will give students the financial, programming and analytical skills needed to help companies accelerate transactions and enhance security - and further establish Scotland's position as a leader in financial innovation.
The intensive, 12-month programme, starting in September 2017, will combine a rigorous, core academic curriculum with the entrepreneurial and innovative elements of Fintech, including financial method, data analytics, regulation, and the applications of technologies such as blockchain and distributed ledgers.
Daniel Broby, Director of Strathclyde's Centre for Financial Regulation and Innovation, said: "Fintech is developing rapidly, utilising software and programming code in innovative ways.  It is driving efficiency up and costs down and the digitalisation of transactions is now a cross- disciplinary science".
"The Scottish financial sector needs to capitalise on Fintech or miss out. Our new course will equip students with the essential skills and knowledge for a career in this field; it combines theory, intensive practice and industrial engagement.
The new course is being run by Strathclyde Business School, recently named the UK's Business School of the Year.
