Certificate in Financial Technology Management

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 finance as a function as well as for the financial sector. 

Therefore, a fundamental understanding of the technologies (such as machine learning) as well as of their impact of data-driven decision-making on business processes and business models is a key skill for professionals in the area 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.
