Oxford University Announces New Fintech Program Focused on Blockchain
Saïd Business School, Oxford University, has announced the launch of a new program focused on financial technology and innovation to help executives launch new Fintech companies and take advantage of new technology to build better financial services companies.
Called “Fintech Oxford Program” it will examine existing and emerging technologies around money and payments, markets and consumer experience, and explore key ideas, principles and frameworks around regtech, proptech and social inclusion.
The program covers topics ranging from Blockchain technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to crowdfunding and quantum computing.
Nir Vulkan, associate professor of business economics at Oxford Saïd and David Shrier, business author and CEO of Distilled Analytics, is leading Oxford Fintech. It also features academics from the UK and US, and more than 60 expert cured banking and technology guests such as Sopnendu Mohanty, Fintech Director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore and Anne Boden, CEO of Starling Bank.
Saïd Business School has launched the program in collaboration with GetSmarter, a wholly owned subsidiary of the educational technology firm 2U, Inc.
“We are honoured and proud to be working with Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, one of the world’s oldest and most respected institutions, on this dynamic, new online Fintech open programme. Students will learn from internationally-recognised Saïd faculty, who bring hands-on industry experience and expertise to the curriculum and programme development, while utilising our Online Campus – a user-friendly, collaborative, people-mediated approach to online learning design,” said Rob Paddock, academic director and co-founder of GetSmart.
Rob Paddock ended by adding that the collaboration was a new validation of the company’s technology that ensures students get the same quality of online education as they would in person.
