MBA in Technology and Innovation of Finance
NHH’s Executive MBA in Fintech is a two-year part-time master programme that will enable you to better understand the challenges and opportunities created by the ongoing Fintech revolution, and how to translate this knowledge into better decisions.
In 1994, Bill Gates famously said that banking services are essential, while banks are not. Now, over two decades later, the prophecy implicit in Gates’ quote is beginning to materialize. Firms both inside and outside of what we traditionally think of the financial sector, have started to challenge the status quo in the financial sector, fuelled by new technologies, new business models and new regulations.
The purpose of the EMBA in Fintech is to give you the knowledge, tools and understanding necessary to understand the challenges and/or opportunities that your firm might face in the wake of the ongoing Fintech revolution. Furthermore, you will learn how to use this knowledge to make better decisions that increase the likelihood that your firm will succeed.
The EMBA in Fintech is a unique interdisciplinary programme that draws on state-of-the-art insights from academic fields such as Finance, Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Economics and Management. Each of the five modules are organized around a set of distinct questions managers face (or are likely to face) when new technology and new business models challenge the existing status quo. These overarching questions will then inform and guide the the technologies and changes we will focus on, the choice of academic insights to understand these phenomena, and also which practitioners we will invite as guest speakers on each module.
If you want to learn more about the strategic consequences of issues such as robotrading, new forms of equity and credit, open banking, artificial intelligence and machine learning, blockchain, cryptocurrency, PSD2 and new business models related to financial services, this might be the program for you. If you also would like to learn how to use this knowledge to help your firm succeed by taking advantage of opportunities and reducing risks, this is definitely the programme for you.
