  • PART-TIME
  • BARCELONA
  • 9 MONTHS
  • ENGLISH

Overview

The top financial brands are heading towards innovation. The digital revolution in financial services just started and no one wants to be at disadvantage.

According to Accenture, “Digital disruption has the potential to shrink the role and relevance of today’s banks, and simultaneously help them create better, faster, cheaper services that make them an even more essential part of everyday life for institutions and individuals.” But also, new start-ups are accelerating this transformation through agile open structures and a fresh vision that empower collaboration and decentralization of structures.

Such innovation can disrupt existing industry structures and blur industry boundaries, facilitate strategic disintermediation, revolutionize how firms create and deliver products and services, create significant privacy, regulatory and law-enforcement challenges, provide new gateways for entrepreneurship, and seed opportunities for inclusive growth.

What will I learn?

The Executive Master in FinTech Solutions is ideal for those who want to take part in the exciting financial digital revolution.

During the Executive Master, you will learn how technology and innovation are reshaping the future of finance, a total disruption that is breaking established business models like:

  • Retail banks versus online-only banks
  • Traditional lenders versus peer-to-peer marketplaces
  • Asset managers versus AI-advisors

This program will provide you with the central innovations of FinTech like cryptocurrencies, blockchain, digital advisory and trading systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, peer-to-peer lending, equity crowdfunding and mobile payment systems.
