The Pearson Fintech Navigator course will explore how Fintech is disrupting the status quo in the financial sector, providing you with the knowledge and skills required to take advantage of the opportunities this disruption presents. The course culminates in a project in which you and your peers present a new business or product idea that could be eligible for local or regional funding opportunities.
During the course you will develop an in-depth understanding of both the risks and opportunities associated with this exciting period of change and innovation. Supported by world-leading Fintech experts David Shrier, Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland, Christopher Tucci and a local instructional facilitator (Facilitator), you will develop a broad and deep understanding of what Fintech is and the radical impact that it will have on the future of the financial system.
As well as developing your knowledge of Fintech, the course will help you develop design thinking skills and become part of a professional network, providing you with the tools to leverage the exciting and world-changing opportunities offered by the rise of Fintech
