University of Georgia MBA Adds Area of Emphasis in FinTech

The Terry College of Business adds Financial Technology to its pool of MBA concentrations and areas of emphasis

The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business now offers its MBA students the opportunity to add an academic area of emphasis in the field of financial technology, or FinTech.

FinTech is a rapidly growing sector that has been making its way into an increasing number of MBA programs.

The MBA program is taught in Atlanta, Georgia, where local companies process 70 percent of all credit, debit and prepaid card transactions in the US. Students who opt to add this area of emphasis to their degrees will enjoy close proximity to the FinTech industry.

The area of emphasis includes 12 hours of relevant coursework, which concludes with a FinTech project undertaken with a corporate partner.
