About the course

From digital payments to peer-to-peer lending, innovations in financial technology continue to capture the attention of businesses and consumers alike. The financial services industry increasingly faces disruption to the value chain, putting incumbent organizations on notice. But why are traditional U.S. incumbents missing out on innovation opportunities? What is driving the development of new, disruptive platforms for processing payments, loans or investments? And further, what are the broader social implications of fintech’s rise?

In our live online course, we’ll address these questions as we examine the current fintech landscape and how disrupters such as Square, Stripe, Lending Club and Robinhood are transforming the financial services market. We’ll also explore the next wave of technologies — blockchain, cryptocurrencies and robotics — which are likely to accelerate the disruption.
