Program description

Finance and Fintech

The Master in Finance and Fintech aims to enable young professionals to deal with the digital transformation that is disruptively changing the financial market, by combining traditional financial skills with deep understanding of new digital technologies. The new emerging technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and big data analytics are deeply modifying the landscape of the financial market, creating immense opportunities for incumbent players but also serious threats from innovative start-ups.

The use of new technologies for financial applications has become vital for banking and insurance companies, which must acquire a thorough understanding of these tools to continue competing in the changing world. Peer-to-peer lending, mobile payments and Insurtech are not futurist trends, but factual reality. To seize the opportunities and face the challenges offered by the digital era, the Master in Fintech trains young professionals to act as a link between the management and the computer scientists, taking part in the development of new digital financial businesses.

Thanks to Bologna Business School’s numerous collaborations with leading players in the digital sector, these new generation of managers, equally grounded on financial competencies and on new technologies, will be able to anticipate, intercept, and exploit the new trends in the financial industry. The explosion of digital technologies in the financial markets has generated an enormous need for figures at ease both with traditional financial competencies, as well as in translating them in new digital solutions and applications. Students are offered an innovative cross-sector didactical approach, capable of granting them a strong competitive advantage, while responding to a new need of the market.

The Master in Fintech is designed for graduate students with excellent knowledge of English, interested in the financial technology sector (“fintech”), as they will learn along with the traditional finance skills, new competencies in new technologies such as AI, big data analytics, blockchain, with the prospect of professional growth in managerial functions connecting technical specialists and finance departments. The program, which is entirely in English, includes two classroom-based terms and concludes with a final internship of 500 hours.
