Master of Financial Technologies to upskill Australian students

A first of its kind postgraduate course commenced in Semester One 2019 and is being delivered through Swinburne University of Technology’s Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship (AGSE).

According to a recent press release, the Master of Financial Technologies (FinTech) was developed through the University’s ongoing partnership with an Australian financial institution.

The new collaboration is based on the industry co-creation model, which runs across all AGSE postgraduate programs.

Moreover, the partnership supports the University’s commitment in delivering courses that equip students with cutting-edge industry skills.

The financial institution will contribute by providing students with industry practitioners, also known as pracademics, who will be teaching alongside academics from the University.

This practical application provides the ultimate innovative learning experience for the students in terms of relevance and professional exposure to a wide network of capabilities.

Leading the way in FinTech education

The vision for the Master of FinTech is to meet current and future market demand for skills and qualifications in emerging technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence.

At the same time, it will help students translate technological developments into innovative business models.

The course is centred on real industry cases and immersive learning taught by qualified academics and leading industry practitioners.

This FinTech education approach covers the applied study of data-oriented, smart technologies; and provides the students with comprehensive knowledge and specific, functional skills.

Partnering with the financial institution allowed the University move beyond the hype and developed a cutting-edge FinTech curriculum.

Some of the opportunities from this co-creation model include having guest speakers, real-life case studies, on-site events, access to data, work-integrated learning and applied projects.

The advent of this new, hands-on Master of FinTech course will equip students with practical skills and real-world experiences, which they can draw on to accelerate their learning and career development.

The co-designed and co-delivered course will also help build on the bank’s knowledge base and internal capability, improve productivity and customer experience, and assist in accelerating their our vision to be Australia’s bank of choice.

Strengthening the existing partnership

The partnership with the financial institution reflects the University’s strong commitment to innovating and creating positive social change.

Partnerships should be aligned in values as well as bring opportunities that will benefit the community through different ways that include funding, research, student placements or other co-created projects.

The financial institution’s strategic partnership with the University is part of the continuing evolution of the bank’s model and represents a further opportunity to strengthen their partnership with a leading Australian education institution.

It is also able to share value by feeding into the prosperity of the tertiary education sector.
