Executive Education


Digitization is transforming companies more fundamentally than the business world has ever seen. Value chains and entire business models will be interrupted. This is and will also be true for any professional task / role in finance as well as for the financial sector as a whole. 

Therefore, a fundamental understanding of digital innovations as well as of the impact of data-driven decision-making on business processes and business models is a key skill for professionals in the field of finance. The different certificate options in financial technology management provide participants with these skills and allow for a broad understanding of future developments in finance.
