Edinburgh Napier University revealed on Wednesday the launch of a brand-new devoted course for its Master’s degree in Fintech. The University reported that its Service School currently has different courses to offer at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and the addition of the brand-new fintech course is set to expand its company portfolio even further.
“The new MSc Financial Innovation is an exciting hybrid drawing its content from both the University’s Company School and the School of Computing, the latter of which has an internationally-recognised track record for research in cybersecurity. It’s open to anyone with a degree in a relevant subject, such as maths, calculating or finance, or people with sufficient professional work experience in the industry.”
The University also exposed that Trainees will have the opportunity to study subjects such as financial management, information wrangling and transnational monetary criminal activity as they equip themselves with the understanding of banking, cybersecurity and more in order to develop their technical awareness in the financial sector. There will also be a chance to discover the management of online identity issues such as fraud. Speaking about the course, Gail Boag, Dean of Edinburgh Napier’s Company School, stated:
“As the only Scottish University to offer bachelor’s degrees in Financial Services established with input from leading Scottish monetary organizations, I am happy to see our leadership in this location grow with an interesting brand-new course that crosses standard academic borders. Fintech has progressed to interfere with and improve commerce and in particular financial services, gaining considerable momentum. We are well put to support this growing digital sector in Scotland combining competence in financing and computing with practice and application.”
David Potter, Fintech program leader at Edinburgh Napier, likewise commented:
“The global phenomenon of Fintech is key to the effective future of all organisations, no matter what size and we’re delighted that Edinburgh Napier is investing in this area with the establishment of a brand-new devoted Masters course.”
Peter Cruickshank, director of Postgraduate Programmes at Edinburgh Napier’s School of Computing, then included:
“This is a fantastic example of how our university is responding to the convergence of financing and innovation, and will equip students with the technical and information skills which are ending up being vital for a career in finance.”
