Oxford is to offer a course in fintech.

The Oxford University Saïd Business School, has launched a new digital open enrolment programme on financial technology and innovation called Oxford Fintech.

‘The course has been designed to equip you with the ability to identify opportunities for disruption in the financial services sector, and enables you to both launch new fintech ventures and harness new technology to build better financial services firms,’ says the blurb for the course.

The course introduction states:

‘YOU’LL WALK AWAY WITH:

A knowledge of the future of money, markets and transactions, and possible future trends in fintech and proptech.

The ability to draft, strategise and develop disruptive fintech innovations using appropriate tools and techniques, and hypothesise about the effect new regulations will have on your products.

A certificate of attendance from Oxford University as validation of your newfound knowledge and skills,’ says the course blurb.

Technologies like Blockchain and AI enable digital banks such as Starling and Monzo which operate with 90% less headcount than traditional banks.

The Oxford programme examines current and emerging technologies around money and payments, markets and consumer experience, and explores key ideas, principles, and frameworks around regtech, proptech and social inclusion. It covers topics ranging from blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to crowdfunding and quantum computing.

The programme has been launched in collaboration with GetSmarter, a subsidiary of 2U, Inc.
