Why enrol for the Digital Banking Innovation programme?

The Digital Banking Innovation programme is one of the offerings in the Imperial Virtual Programme portfolio, characterised by live interactive sessions with faculty.

Who is this programme for?

The course is designed to provide a comprehensive overview for executives interested in changing banking models and innovations in the way clients and customers access and interact with financial products. We delve into the reasons that these changes have occurred, who is driving this change, who is funding the growth and who is creating new propositions. We also look at the future of this new world order and what it might look like in years to come.
