The Masters of Science (MSc) in FinTech is to be offered by the University of Strathclyde.

While several such courses are offered in Europe and the United States, this is the first to be offered by a UK institution.

Daniel Brodby, director of Strathclyde’s Centre for Financial Regulation and Innovation said:

FinTech is developing rapidly, utilising software and programming code in innovative ways. It is driving efficiency up and costs down and the digitalisation of transactions is now a cross-disciplinary science.

The course, which will be offered to students from September 2017, will be run by the university’s Business School, with contributions from tutors from the Departments of Accounting and Finance, and Management Science.
