About the course

In this program, participants will explore how the financial sector is being improved by the technological revolution, from its impact on payment schemes to the use of big data and machine learning to enhance capital markets.



Use your STEM skills to translate new technologies into value in the banking and financial world.


The program offers a holistic view of the technology landscape financial institutions are facing.


Explore key developments in banking and finance: from new banking models to digital payment services.


The business world today requires a combination of valuable technical skills and solid business knowledge.



Technology is clearly changing the way we pay for goods and services, exemplified by digital payments like Apple Pay and more profound changes like the transition to a cashless society. This module provides an overview of different payment schemes powered by new technologies, from NFC to blockchain payments, and how they are changing the relationship between banks and their customers.


Data and technology are transforming capital markets in the finance world. This module explores how big data technologies are providing the required infrastructure for data-powered tech—from artificial intelligence to data ecosystems—and how these new technologies are impacting capital market processes in financial institutions. Additionally, this module looks at the transformative potential of quantum computing.


One of the most disruptive impacts of technology is its ability to disaggregate both the supply and demand in an industry by providing an efficient way to group individual producers and customers. This module provides an overview of how technology is disaggregating the capital markets, from peer-to-peer lending to the sharing economy. All of these models are examples of the power that technology has to reorganize how an industry provides its services.


Technology allows for new products and banking models to emerge. This module covers the two most prominent new banking models, open banking and banking as a service, which are helping power the fintech revolution worldwide. Additionally, it will cover new ways in which technology is affecting the capital-raising process, including crowdfunding and virtual exchanges. This module also provides an overview of the potential of virtual reality and augmented reality.


The last block of banking and financial services being disrupted by new technologies is investment management. Once again, technology is showing its ability to lower operational costs by providing an automated alternative to traditional full-human service offerings. Robo-advisors are the best example of this shift and this module covers them extensively, along with other new trading models like copy trading and social trading.
