The future of Fintech is arriving and it’s changing the world. New Fintech-related opportunities are being embraced across sectors, giving rise to innovative ideas and new needs for knowledge and skills. Business schools are increasingly looking to meet that need.
GBSN and the CFTE are bringing together representatives from business schools around the world who share an interest in the rapidly transforming world of financial technology and the important role of business educators in realizing the potential of this specialized and ever growing industry.
We invite educators and leaders who specialize in this area from around the world to join a two-part event:
- First, hear from panelists discussing the current state of fintech at their school and in their region, as well as their perspective of opportunities and challenges.
- Second, join a focused discussion of the potential for the Fintech & Entrepreneurship Impact Community to serve continued development in one of three key areas: masters level programs and curricula, executive education, and entrepreneurship programs and outreach.
Through this roundtable discussion, we hope to create and support a community that will cultivate the exchange of best practices, share resources, and foster collective action through collaboration as we move forward in building a better financial future for all of us.
In 2022, the Global Business School Network (GBSN) and the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE) announced a partnership to form the GBSN-CFTE Center for Excellence in FinTech.
The Center for Excellence aims to bring together academics and practitioners from around the world 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.
The Fintech and Entrepreneurship Impact Community operates as a network of academics focused on exchanging best practices, sharing resources, and fostering collective action to increase quality fintech education in all corners of the world.
