The FinTech degree program not only includes traditional finance coursework, but also provides an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the theories and evolution of FinTech, data-driven financial modeling, financial data mining and machine learning, financial data analytics, and new innovations in the financial sector. The primary goal of the program is to develop students who have the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue competitive professional and academic careers. Graduates from this program may work for FinTech startups which concentrate in cryptocurrency management and trading, blockchain technologies, open banking, insurtech, Robo-advisement, machine learning and data mining applications and cybersecurity. Some may work for traditional financial services companies, which are in need of staff with technical skill sets to improve existing business practices and/or develop new processes related to technological innovations.
