Brandeis International Business School

Students concentrating in FinTech will graduate with the skills to manage and develop innovative technology in the financial services industry.

Succeed in a Growing Field

Financial technology transforms business and disrupts business practices through innovations that will undoubtedly shape the nature and boundaries of firms in the coming years. It affects both established firms and startups as we move rapidly to a digitized and data-intensive world.

The FinTech concentration teaches the ability to think outside the world of structured financial data by incorporating insights from unstructured data, predictive analytics and artificial intelligence (A.I.) to drive new financial thinking and processes that deliver innovative financial products and strategies for long term productivity improvements and economic growth.

In a global survey recently conducted by PWC, more than 80% of businesses believe that their firms are at risk and already losing revenues to innovative FinTech companies.
