Why FinTech Management?

The career opportunities for someone with both the technical and business skills needed to manage FinTech implementations are enormous and expanding rapidly. As this emerging field surges forward, traditional banking institutions and corporations of every size and geographic location are struggling to understand, staff, and implement FinTech. After extensive market research and feedback from FinTech service and technology providers, traditional financial service providers, and businesses of every type, an immense shortage was identified of technical personnel with the requisite business skills to transition into management roles. Through a holistic approach that incorporates these complementary skills, AUS is helping to educate FinTech professionals while offering them a competitive advantage in the job market.

All courses are taught on-site by AUS professors, who are distinguished leaders in the fields of crypto-economics, cybersecurity, and financial services. The program considers the disruptive and innovative nature of FinTech as a technology-enabled business model. Moreover, as FinTech is continuously changing and evolving, so too will the curriculum at AUS evolve to keep pace.

This environment emphasizes collaboration and team building alongside the healthy competition. At AUS, top-tier internationally diverse classmates come together, share professional experiences, and form groups of team players where mutual commitment and joint accountability lead to highly effective teams. Beyond the depth and breadth of knowledge gained in the classroom, the life-long connections developed while attending AUS will be of immeasurable value.
