M.A.S. in FinTech: How Are AI and Blockchain Disrupting the Finance Industry?
The fintech industry is currently entering a new Web3 era, with trillions of dollars invested in digital assets and entirely new technology skills needed to build it. At the same time artificial intelligence is automating much of the capital markets and asset management sectors, requiring strong financial modeling and programming skills. This informational session will showcase Illinois Tech's new Master of Financial Technology (fintech) program, a two-year, professional, STEM-designated master’s program with a six-month practicum hosted by a Chicago-based fintech company. Learn more about AI and blockchain in finance and what fintech career opportunities are on offer, and explore what skills and knowledge you will gain through attending this short talk and partaking in a Q&A session with this year's Risk.net Buy-side Quant of the Year and M.A.S. in FinTech program director, Associate Professor Matthew Dixon.
The virtual event will begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 22.Register
