Bangor University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Financial technology (or FinTech) is a significant new development that promises to revolutionise the delivery and use of financial services. Given the importance of the financial sector to the UK economy, the UK government has stated its ambition to make the UK a global capital for FinTech. Our exciting new programmes aim to service the demand for suitably skilled graduates from the rapidly developing FinTech sector. Modern businesses collect and interpret vast amounts of data and information about their customers and activities. Business Analysts use specialist skills to investigate and examine this information, to interpret it and identify patterns meaning that businesses can make evidence-based decisions. Our course will equip you with core skills in business analytics. You will develop both quantitative and computing skills within a business context, which will provide you with deep understanding of management theory and practice. The programme will interest economists, marketeers and management students. In addition to gaining specialist analytical skills, the programme will equip you with specialist computer sciences skills including programming using Python, big data and cyber security. By combining theoretical concepts with practical applications, this course will provide you with a skill set that you will need for a successful career in these rapidly evolving sectors.
