Hosted on Zoom.

The digital transformation of finance is coming down in history. In this rapidly transforming environment, it is imperative to keep acquiring new skills and knowledge to stay competitive.

That is why we are pleased to partner with Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship on the GBSN-CFTE Center for Excellence in FinTech.

As a way to launch this new initiative, we are hosting an informational session to begin discussions around incorporating FinTech education into university programming. During this discussion we will introduce CFTE’s Fintech 360 Program, which is a 6 week program that will give you the skill-set and knowledge to stay at the centre of the digital transformation of finance. Curated with leaders in the Digital Finance scene, this online program will give you the skill-set and knowledge to stay at the centre of the digital transformation of finance.

The goal of this informational session is not only to introduce the new GBSN-CFTE Center for Excellence in FinTech, but also to dissect and diversify digital technological changes impacting banking, insurance, and other sectors of the finance industry. The focus is to identify the challenges that developing countries face going from their traditional financial infrastructures, to a revolutionized one.

As a way to launch this new GBSN IMPACT Community, we invite academic faculty, administrators from institutions to join practitioners across the world to join us for this informational session on July 20th, 2022.
