From a management perspective, the financial sector has moved from being stable, conservative, closed and local to being disrupted by new entrants and internet giants with very different industry dynamics and risk profiles. Issues such as money laundering, financial fraud and corruption create societal and business challenges that need to be addressed. Fintech, artificial intelligence and digitalisation are game changers, whether you work for an established player in the financial sector or a start-up funded by a private equity fund.
The intention of this specialisation has been to provide managers and specialists with a strong, skills-based, values-driven and ethical foundation for their careers in the financial sector by introducing governance, compliance, risk management and digitalisation into the core of the business.
The specialisation consists of 3 courses and can be completed separately or integrated as part of a full Master's degree in Business Development (MBD).
