FinTech Education at Georgia Tech

Launching Soon: New fintech program to provide skills training to working professionals

Powering the Future of FinTech Education

Financial technology, or FinTech, is revolutionizing the way the financial services industry operates. Financial service firms, insurance agencies, and investment banks are all increasingly at the intersection of data and technology, harnessing cybersecurity, big data, and blockchain to conduct business. 

To succeed in this new environment, fintech professionals will need to pursue learning and development opportunities to reskill and upskill in preparation for leadership in an ever-changing marketplace. 

As a collaboration between Georgia’s fintech industry and the University System of Georgia, Georgia Tech Professional Education (GTPE) is designing and developing FinTechU, a FinTech education program aimed at providing the required training to enter and be successful in the FinTech sector. 

Whether you’re a rising executive at a financial services firm, an entrepreneur who has launched or plans to launch a FinTech startup, or an individual working in the payments industry, the key competencies and skills being developed as part of Georgia Tech’s new fintech program will provide you the knowledge you need for any stage of your career.
