Boot camp immerses Masters students in FinTech

During your Masters programme, you can participate in a 3-week boot camp to gain in-depth understanding of a specific sector. Traditional teaching is kept to a minimum, classrooms are flipped. You get to work in groups on cases and assignments, applying the knowledge you have gained to real-life challenges.

No less than 52 students opted for the brand-new boot camp in Financial Services which zoomed in on how digital technology is disrupting the financial services sector and how new business models are emerging. During this 3-week boot camp, over 30 guest speakers informed the students on the current ecosystem of incumbent companies and start-ups who are making financial services faster, cheaper and more transparent.

To get a taste of this rapidly changing market they also took a field trip to London, one of the FinTech capitals of the world, where they visited various start-ups and the renowned accelerator Level39.
