Oxford University is making a move to get into fintech

The Oxford University is branching out into fintech to open up big opportunities for people with the right skills and knowledge. The Oxford FinTech Programme will equip students with the ability to identify opportunities for disruption in the financial services sector, enabling them to launch new fintech ventures and harness new technology to build better financial services firms.

Oxford has launched the programme in conjunction with educational technology firm GetSmarter, which is currently owned by fellow ed-tech business 2U, a global leader in education technology. The 10 weeks online course will cost £2,500 and will teach people a broad range of skills relevant to fintech. The course begins in October and covers 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. The programme also features academics from the UK and the US, and over 60 curated expert perspectives from banking and technology guest speakers such as Sopnendu Mohanty, chief fintech officer at the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and Anne Boden, CEO at Starling Bank.

Peter Tufano, professor of finance, Saïd Business School, says: "Drawing upon the expertise of leading academics and practitioners from Saïd Business School, our new digital FinTech programme, supported by GetSmarter, will provide entrepreneurs and executives with the insights and knowledge necessary to navigate this changing landscape, and adapt and progress in their careers."
