Courses are a unit of education that typically last a single academic term at a college or university. Students often take courses to fulfill a degree requirement or to explore a new topic in an academic environment.
What is a course in fintech? The term “fintech” comes from the words “finance” and “technology.” This field of study combines the increasingly popular and effective use of technology with the trends of finance to develop effective and innovative ways to disrupt and augment the financial world. Fintech courses can touch on topics such as digital currency, thematic investing, cyber security, financial markets, credit scoring and education lending.
Students with an education in fintech are often great at solving problems with a creative approach. Employers have also found these students can be organized and pay strong attention to detail. These traits can prove highly beneficial in professional and personal relationships.
Studying fintech at this academic level often costs money for both study materials and the courses. Many schools charge tuition per course, and this charge can typically be offset by financial aid or scholarships. Before enrolling in a course, contact the school admissions office and ask about tuition and additional fees.
The fintech industry is broad and amorphous, leading to a wide selection of potential careers for one to consider. A student with an advanced degree in this field may consider work in the private or public sectors. He or she may pursue work as a cyber security specialist, wealth manager, financial risk manager, compliance analyst, data specialist or innovation officer.
Fintech is a growing field, and many schools around the world are developing degree programs for it. Courses in fintech may be available online, making it easier for you to complete with a busy or unique schedule.

Cryptocurrencies are a unique new asset class, which burst onto the world stage during 2017 with sharp rises in price. Cryptocurrencies were at first poorly understood and can still be a confusing concept. We tackle the question of what are cryptocurrencies in the first lesson in this course, which outlines how they are created and administered, and what they represent. This first lesson also looks at blockchain technology, which is at the heart of all cryptocurrencies, and reviews how risky and volatile cryptocurrencies naturally are.
The second lesson asks why cryptocurrencies could be interesting for both traders or investors, with a special focus on traders. The lesson looks at the statistical principle of volatility clustering and infers that there is likely to be a great deal of price movement in the major cryptocurrencies over the near term, as well as reviewing the profits which early investors in significant disruptive technologies have made over recent decades....

After a relatively late start, the InsurTech sector has seen increased funding and interest in 2015 and Q1 2016. The need for better user experience, demand for different on-demand insurance products by Millennials, increase in data from sensors and IoT present huge potential for Insurance sector disruption in health insurance, life insurance, and property and casualty insurance sectors. But at the same time, regulatory nuances in these sectors present challenges for startups unfamiliar with the insurance industry. Recent partnerships between established global Insurance firms and InsurTech startups is showing a potential way forward for this evolving industry.

Traditional wealth management/ PFM world was shaken with the advent of so-called “robo advisors” in recent years. ‘Robo-advisor’ is a generic term used to describe a new class of investment advisory service that is offered online, is automated and based on algorithms. This new class of advice started as an offering to occupy the space between self-directed (DIY) investors and human financial advisor recommended investment advice. Further, it was considered an ideal advice vehicle for digital savvy millennials. While several robo-advisor startups entered the PFM marketplace, only a few remain standing and have cumulatively attracted only a small fraction of the overall investable assets. But, these robo-advisors have had a bigger impact on the industry. They have forced traditional investment advisory firms to evolve and provide automated, low-cost investment advice options. Further, robo-advisors have themselves evolved to cater to the B2B market as well as to other areas like retirement plan advice and education plan advice. All this only goes to show that automated advice is still is in its nascent stages and is here to stay in one form or another....

The JOBS Act, or otherwise known as the Crowdfunding Act, has been passing into law since 2012 with the most recent development, Regulation CF, enacted in May of 2016 which has opened up investing in privately-held businesses to the average investor. Previously, only the wealthiest individuals that had $200K or more in annual salary or $1MM+ in net worth, could partake.
This is analogous to tapping into the “other 96%” of US investors as potential sources of startup capital, which brings forth a new financial instrument to enable small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to raise their working capital from their own personal and professional networks or investor networks sourced via a crowdfunding portal or broker-dealer. There are many applications of crowdfunding in today’s marketplace such as tech startups, real estate, cleantech, tourist attractions, computer games, music bands and product companies to name a few....

It seems like almost every week you see a new report on the impact of FinTech. Some reports proclaim that up to 30% of Financial Services industry’s current jobs will become redundant in the coming years due to FinTech. Some reports comment that FinTech has shaken up the highly regulated industry and is benefiting the end consumer. But no one seems to be disputing that FinTech is redefining the Financial Services industry as we know it. Venture Capitalists, as well as Corporates, believe so. They are investing in FinTech startups and initiatives. As per a recent KPMG and CB Insights report, $19.1 Bn flowed in the FinTech sector just in 2015. That’s a 106% jump compared to 2014.
If you have ever wondered what this FinTech buzz is all about, or even wondered what FinTech is all about, this course is for you....
