The first international Master course on Fintech & Innovation starts in Italy

Fintech District is the ecosystem partner of the first international Master on Fintech & Innovation in Italy, structured by Fintech EduLab and LUMSA Master School and which will start at the end of October in Rome at the LUMSA University. Starting off from the trends and demand for skills in the sector, the Master, led by internationally renowned teachers and mentors, will aim to form a class of selected students who will closely explore the themes of Fintech and Innovation.

“For us, being an active part of this initiative means giving more opportunities to young people and creating the conditions in which the Italian Fintech ecosystem can grow, becoming more competitive at an international level, thus making the whole country grow” commented Alessandro Longoni, head of Fintech District, explaining the reasons for which we have joined this initiative.

The Master will last 12 months, during which lectures, workshops, business cases, project work and internships will alternate. The lessons can also be followed online. Students will have the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting European fintech companies during a trip to London and Oxford.

The idea of creating this project was born observing how the continuous and growing development of the Fintech sector is giving birth to new professions not yet present in the current job offer.

“This is why it is important to update in the educational field, so that the new generations can have access to training courses which give them more employment opportunities, making available in the field of work in the coming years the profiles that Fintech companies already require today – affirmed Longoni – As well as there being a point of access to the Italian Fintech for international stakeholders, we are also a reference hub for those working in Italy at Fintech. Dialoguing with the members of our community and with the major players in the sector operating in our country, we have noticed that they have difficulty in finding people with a suitable preparation for this new sector. We believe that this Master can give an answer to this need “.

Organized by Fintech EduLab and LUMSA University, this master was also realized thanks to numerous partners who have accepted this challenge in the educational field. Among the corporate partners that have recently joined we can find Fabrick, financeAds, Housers and Medici.

The Master, structured in collaboration with the Center for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (London), Instilla (Milan) and SuperCharger Fintech Accelerator (Hong Kong), as educational partners, is supported by BorsadelCredito.it, Circle, Curvegrid, Endeavor Italy, Fabrick, Finecoq Limited, financeAds, Housers, KPMG, Doctors, Moneyfarm, N26, Opportunity Network, Oval Money, Regtech Canada, Supernovae Labs, Traction Management and Virtual B.
