About the course

Overcome Organizational Development Challenges by deploying various approaches to Digital Finance Two billion people in the developing world lack access to a bank 200 million small businesses cannot get the credit they need to grow, a gap estimated at $2.2 trillion. The solution to these gigantic issues can be summed up in two words – digital finance. Digital Finance is the idea that individuals and companies can have access to payments, savings, and credit products without ever stepping into a bank branch.

Emerging digital technologies are redefining finance by integrating Internet technology and finance, expanding customers’ access, enhancing the reach of providers, lowering the cost of providing financial services and enabling new business models with a potential to creating new revenue streams.

Financial services are the lifeblood of an economy. Digital finance is fundamentally about saving, depositing and transferring money, accessing credit and insurance, and performing transactions via digital channels—online banking, mobile phones, cards, computers, tablets, and so on.

Against this backdrop, this course covers the entire spectrum of digital finance i.e. business model creation, product design, strategic risk planning, financial regulations, policy, technology and fraud management.
