"The programme is made up of three building blocks. First, combining theory with
practice, the programme provides a strong basis on finance (corporate finance,
financial intermediation, capital markets), information technology, computer

derivative evaluation). The second building block covers the technologies of digital
innovation that play a preeminent role in Fintech: big data management,
cybersecurity, distributed ledger technologies, smart contacts, blockchain, machine
learning, natural language processing, data visualization. Then the programme

intermediation activity (banking, insurance, asset management) and how it can
disintermediate traditional players in a peer to peer perspective (cryptocurrencies,
smart payments, peer to peer lending, crowd funding). Attention will be devoted to
how artificial intelligence may change some aspects of the finance activity (big
data, risk management,
algorithmic trading, customer relationship, systemic risk, etc.) and to the
development of a business ideas in the fintech environment."
