Give us your feedback Thank you for your feedback. I sat in on an MBA finance class at a leading business school recently. The professor, who was explaining the intricacies of asset management and just-in-time manufacturing, was magnetic. The students were intelligent and full of enthusiasm. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and came away elated at my new-found understanding of lean strategies.
Georgia's Robinson College of Business has opened a fintech lab spanning data analytics and finance -- the latest example of the fintech frenzy at top US business schools. Robinson's lab will provide an applied, experiential environment in which students, faculty and corporate partners can experiment with the technologies transforming financial services, insurance and real estate. Data analytics, machine learning and blockchain technology will be important components of the lab. Students will explore how these tools can help develop smart contracts, support the study algorithmic trading, and help with credit risk modelling and lending decisions. In initial projects, lab users will work with stock market, real estate, insurance contract and property sales data to explore the development, deployment and implementation of financial applications on alternative platforms.
Princeton's two-year master in finance programme was established in 1998. It is run within the Bendheim Center for Finance, the university's interdisciplinary research hub. Its typical intake of students is around 30 – deliberately smaller than some larger rivals, says Wendell Collins, programme co-ordinator. Princeton is a small university; so is the programme. There's a customised collegial atmosphere where people really get to know each other: the faculty members, alumni mentors.
Data analytics and advanced technology are driving the financial industry. Creighton University doesn't want its students to be left behind and created a FinTech degree to ensure that. Among the first of its kind in the country, Creighton University Heider College of Business students will be able to earn a degree in Finance and Technology, beginning in the fall. Close to half of the curriculum will be comprised of newly developed classes focused on Python programming, machine learning, blockchain and the foundations of FinTech. The degree is aimed at arming students with the skills necessary in today's financial markets and to give them a deep understanding of how tech is disrupting the financial sector.
