Program description

Master of Science in Fintech

Digital technology and finance have been inextricably linked for decades, but we are entering a new era. Technologies like machine learning, data analytics, biometrics or blockchain are creating new possibilities to address credit and risk management, identity management, information security, secure payments or portfolio management. The full impact on the banking and insurance sectors is yet to be seen, but the impact on every aspect of our lives can still be only imagined. Imaginem for example: what will be the impact on businesses when customers can pay anytime, anywhere, using only biometric information?

The new Fintech programs at the EIT Digital Master School is designed to provide graduates with a holistic skill set, a cross-functional perspective and an entrepreneurial mindset that will enable them to lead organisations in this new paradigm. They will not only be able to imagine these new technology applications, but to develop them and bring them to market.
