Message from Academic Director


FinTech, short for financial technology, is a burgeoning multidisciplinary area where novel technologies and financial innovations are employed to improve traditional financial services. Its rapid development has changed and will continue to change the global financial system as well as our lives profoundly, and Hong Kong, as one of the leading international financial centers, has been witnessing growing needs for people with FinTech-related expertise.
