How can you create value from new financial technology?

Finance innovations are impacting not only the way financial intermediaries operate, but also the way companies generate and capture value. The Digital Finance program (DF) helps you understand the new financial technologies so you can create value and revenue from them. 

How does blockchain technology work? You will discover new opportunities to create value and revenue from fintech, such as blockchain, cryptocurrencies and the tokenization of tangible/intangible assets. You will meet with industry experts including: blockchain entrepreneurs, major players from the Swiss Crypto-Valley (Zug) and financial innovators in asset management. The course comprises real-life cases, simulations, hands-on exercises and the possibility for extensive exchange with peers and faculty.

How safe are you? You will also address the growing importance of cybersecurity and the protection of private identities.

What's next for finance? You will consider finance from a wider perspective and what the future holds.

Participant review

I am a really big fan of Prof. Arturo Bris. His ability to see beyond the normal horizon of thinking, helps you really connect things together. You learn so much from him. You don't just consume information, he is constantly challenging your thinking - in very nice and enjoyable way.
