The Master of Financial Technologies will develop your expertise in FinTech and provide the skills required to apply emerging technologies and lead transformative, strategic change within financial services.

There is a significant shortage of skilled financial sector professionals with a strong understanding of technologies such as blockchain, automated platforms, AI and issues such as cybersecurity and fraud detection. This course is co-designed and co-delivered with Swinburne’s industry partners – Bendigo Bank, IBM and Tableau – to address these skill shortages and to ensure you learning experience is practical and current.

You’ll examine real-world challenges, undertake applied projects, and regularly engage with Australian and international guest speakers. You’ll also benefit from leading-edge researchers, such as those in Swinburne’s Blockchain Innovation Lab

Financial technologies are expected to disrupt and impact every aspect of financial services. Graduates of this course will be prepared for opportunities in existing organisations and new FinTech start-ups.

This master program includes a specialisation or electives from a wide selection of complementary business area such as entrepreneurship and innovation, finance, project management, business information systems and business analytics.

Depending on prior learning and experience, you may complete the master in one year, 18 months or two years.
