This programme is designed for mid to senior level professionals wanting to gain an understanding of how the fintech ecosystem operates. Participants come from all over the world and hold an interest in strategy and innovation, working in industries such as construction, professional services and finance. An understanding of finance principles would be advantageous; however, no banking experience is required.
This two-week virtual programme features 90-minute live faculty lectures with a Q&A at the end of each session. The sessions include engaging “try-it” and crowdsourcing features that help create an interactive, personalised and supportive learning experience.
In the age of the Internet, banks have lost their monopoly on finance. A growing number of crowdfunding operators, P2P lenders, and investment-based platforms allow businesses to access capital on favourable terms. However, as the alternative finance industry matures, existing operators have been arguing for greater regulatory oversight to act as a barrier to entry for new platforms.
This session introduces the main approaches to finance based on machine learning techniques. A crucial element in successfully applying machine learning to finance requires finding relevant tasks. At the same time, machine learning algorithms can be applied naively or their output can be misinterpreted. The class aims to make them conceptually easier to use by providing a crisper understanding of how these algorithms work, where they can be most usefully applied.
Today, there is a growing trend towards digital banks, in this module we talk about the strengths of the digital banks and how they differ from traditional banks. Also, we explore the challenges traditional banks face in their digital transition.
