Why Digital Transformation in Financial Services MicroMasters?

Financial technology is a field that is rapidly innovating, fueled by diverse predictions and concerns for what this will mean for the future of commerce and markets.

Will digital currencies like Bitcoin fade in the face of insurgents? Can new currencies, regulations, and digital infrastructure enlighten social progress?

This program in Digital Transformation in Finance will equip participants with the foundations to participate in these dialogues, as well as provide resources and support as to how to shape their own FinTech ventures.
