Course summary

FinTech (financial technology) is an evolving technology which provides innovation and efficiency in the financial services. FinTech includes distributed ledger technology also known as the blockchain, big data and business intelligence. You explore topics including fundamentals of software for digital innovation, big data and business intelligence, contemporary financial technology, machine learning, blockchain and cryptocurrency. You develop theoretical, technical and critical thinking skills in applying disruptive innovative technologies to financial services. The Advanced Practice route enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research-based internship to the one-year master’s programme. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge. A research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, research and academic skills by working alongside our artificial intelligence and machine learning research groups. We guarantee a research internship, but cannot guarantee a vocational internship. However we provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own vocational internship position. You can expect to find employment in one of the increasing number of sectors needing specialists equipped with the cutting-edge expertise in financial and digital technologies. The course provides you with directly transferable skills for a career in a range of industries in the finance sector, as well as progression opportunities to PhD research.
