Imperial Launches New Master's in FinTech

MSc program to begin in 2019

The UK's Imperial College Business School has announced plans to launch a FinTech-focused Master's program, beginning next year.

Imperial's new Master’s in Financial Technology will help students develop the specialized skills that are required in this emerging field.

“Financial services are very competitive and so there is a huge demand from these companies for skilled and highly trained young professionals to drive their adoption of these technologies and gain an edge in the market," says James Sefton, co-director of the new program.

The new Master's in Financial Technology will include a range of courses, covering topics such as Accounting, Systematic Trading Strategies, Big Data, Financial Econometrics, Investment Management and Empirical Finance, among others. The program will also include a research project.

MSc Financial Technology students will also have access to specialized software facilities from Bloomberg, Reuters Eikon, and Datastream.

Imperial's new FinTech program will launch in September 2019. Prospective candidates should have a quantitative undergraduate degree at the  First Class Honours or Upper Second Class Honours level.
