With the increasing demand in FinTech talent from the job market, as a new initiative, the College  of Business collaborated with The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (HKIB) to organise a 3-day customised training on Fundamental FinTech Management. The training which was supported by the Hong Kong Monetary Authorities (HKMA) and sponsored by our Department of Economics and Finance, was delivered to 35 CB students, out of which, 74% of the participants were EF students and 26% were from the BSc Computational Finance and Financial Technology programme.  97% students have successfully passed the exams and awarded with a Certificate of Achievement in Fundamental FinTech Management certified by HKIB. 

Training Modules:

Risk Management in Financial Technology
Presented by Mr Leo Tong, HKIB

Managing Global FinTech Regulatory Risk and Embracing FinTech Opportunities in the GBA
Presented by Mr Dominic Wu, HKIB

Managing Artificial Intelligence and Innovative FinTech Applications
Presented by Dr Anthony Woo, HKIB

To support the industries in building a talent pipeline of young FinTech talent, this collaboration aimed to arouse students’ interest in developing a career in FinTech; to equip students with the hard and technical skills required for a FinTech career in addition to a Finance/Business curriculum; and to prepare students for early professional certifications during their undergraduate studies.  With this successful pilot collaboration, similar programmes will be continued on an annual basis to benefit more students. 

Congratulations to all the certified students. The College would also like to thank HKIB and HKMA for the great support.
