Management School launches new master’s programme in Financial Technology
The University of Liverpool Management School has developed a new MSc Financial Technology programme to add to its suite of postgraduate courses.
Financial Technology, or FinTech, is widely regarded as the future of finance. Technology such as blockchain and cryptocurrencies may be making the headlines but, according to the UK’s Department for International Trade, FinTech also has the potential to increase transparency and efficiency in the financial sector and give the most vulnerable in society access to financial services.
The new MSc Financial Technology programme at Liverpool will provide students with expert global knowledge on both the academic and commercial aspects of this evolving area of finance.
Graduates from the programme are likely to pursue a career in financial or legal sectors particularly in the specialisms of financial markets, risk, trading, Python, banking, LawTech, payments and settlements, cryptocurrencies, regulations, entrepreneurship, research, government agencies, international financial agencies and higher education.
Gavin Brown, Director of Studies for the MSc Financial Technology, said that: “Financial services are undergoing the fastest pace of change in human history enabled by multifaceted technological changes. Our new programme in MSc Financial Technology ensures that University of Liverpool graduates understand the commercialisation of these changes and are ready for the future of finance and the opportunities that this brings.”
Applications are now open for the inaugural autumn 2021 intake. More information regarding the programme content, fees and entry requirements can be found on the MSc Financial Technology study page.
Full and partial scholarships are available for eligible students with an excellent academic background.
