Program Description

Why study Fintech (FT) at EIT Digital Master School?

Digital technology and finance have been inextricably linked for decades, but we are entering a new era. Technologies like machine learning, data analytics, biometrics or blockchain are creating new possibilities to address credit and risk management, identity management, information security, secure payments or portfolio management. The full impact on the banking and insurance sectors is yet to be seen, but the impact on every aspect of our lives can still be only imagined. Imagine for example: what will be the impact on businesses when customers can pay anytime, anywhere, using only biometric information?

The new Fintech program at the EIT Digital Master School is designed to provide graduates with a holistic skill set, a cross-functional perspective and an entrepreneurial mindset that will enable them to lead organizations in this new paradigm. They will not only be able to imagine these new technology applications but to develop them and bring them to the market.

How is the program structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programs follow the same scheme:

115049_allprogrammes.png

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical program focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers specialization and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
