Aims and objectives

 New unit - Semester 2 2018
This unit will develop students’ knowledge and skills in the managing, utilising and leveraging of information technologies to support daily operations in financial institutions. This subject provides students with an understanding of emerging technologies, such as blockchain, ‘big data’ and artificial intelligence, and how they are and will potentially affect the delivery of financial services, the potential implications for incumbent financial service providers and those seeking to disrupt them.
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
 1. Critically analyse the key issues, challenges and priorities for technologies in financial services, and the new and emerging technologies in different business contexts
2. Demonstrate coherent and advanced knowledge of the impact of financial technologies on financial markets, exchanges, and banking
3. Synthesise prior learning including the use of research techniques to examine emerging technologies and their implications on financial services delivery
4. Research and critically evaluate the role of big data management and data analytics as well as other technological artefacts/concepts in financial services
5. Communicate and present in a proficient and professional manner as a member or leader of a diverse group of people
