The choice of elective courses makes it possible for students taking the certificate to get a combined deep knowledge in the four main fields relevant to FinTech applications: F (Financial Technology), T (Technological and methodological skills related to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning), D (Computer programming with emphasis on programming languages useful in FinTech) and B (Digital businesses and digital value creation for financial services and products).

In order to achieve its educational objective, the FinTech Certificate programme offers two types of Master’s courses:

- Two compulsory courses focusing on FinTech (8 ECTS credits in total).  

- Four categories of compulsory elective courses in the remaining areas of F, T, D and B. Ideally, the FinTech students will take at least one course from each category.  (16 ECTS credits in total)

To successfully complete the FTC, students should earn a total of 24 ECTS credits.
