The International Master in Fintech, Finance and Digital Innovation is the programme developed by MIP Politecnico di Milano as a result of the cooperation with the Department of Mathematics, the Department of Management Engineering and the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of the Politecnico di Milano, to provide all the skills and competencies needed to face the Fintech revolution.

The 12-month Master, entirely taught in English, offers a comprehensive education in finance and an in-depth understanding of digital technologies and their applications in the financial sector (banking, insurance companies, asset management). The programme targets young graduates who want to specialise in the Fintech area and its aim is to train professionals to be able to understand and manage digital transformation, building on their different skills and capabilities. The Master builds on the collaboration with our partners from the financial industry — Aviva, Deloitte, Fabrick Spa, IBM and Intesa Sanpaolo — in order to combine theoretical competencies in methods and technologies with the expertise of the financial world and Fintech applications. The Master also boasts cooperation with Fintech companies such as ZeroKMFinance ANIMA, Aegis Human Consulting Group, UnipolSai, illimity, Unicredit, Nexi and NTT DATA.

The programme is structured in three building blocks, designed to guide all participants through a learning funnel that enables the attainment of an in-depth understanding of the Fintech revolution. Starting from a strong basis in Finance, Information Technology, Computer Programming and Quantitative Finance, students will understand the foundations of the Fintech ecosystem. The Master then covers digital innovation technologies that play a preeminent role in Fintech, such as big data, cybersecurity, distributed ledger technologies, smart contracts, blockchain, machine learning, natural language processing and data visualisation. Finally, the programme enters into the Fintech domain, analysing how these technologies/methodologies can transform classical intermediation activity and how they can disintermediate traditional players in a peer-to-peer perspective. Students will also have the opportunity to spend a week in the UK, at the University College London (UCL).
