NYU - Stern to Offer an MBA Specialization in Financial Technology

New specialization to prepare students for jobs in the FinTech industry

In fall 2016, New York University's Stern School of Business will launch an MBA specialization in Financial Technology, or "FinTech."

FinTech—which refers to the use of technology to streamline financial services—is a booming industry. Investments in financial technology have increased from $1.8 billion in 2010 to $19 billion in 2015.1, according to NYU.

NYU's new MBA specialization will prepare students for roles in the changing FinTech space. “Inevitably, there will be more peer-to-peer exchanges without a human middleman to certify the transaction. In addition to start-ups, many jobs will be situated in legacy banks that are currently racing to catch up with the technology.” says NYU Finance Professor David Yermack.

The specialization will include a range of FinTech courses covering topics like data management, the impact of digital currencies on financial services, and trading strategies, among others.
