Course Description

The purpose of this course is to provides an overview of recent research on the various aspects of digital technology that now shapes the financial services and banking sectors. It underscores the integration of financial technology (fintech), blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), and many other recent innovations to transform how we view our current processes and future possibilities. This course also covers the importance of transformative adoption in our industries and discusses the relevant policy mechanisms to enable its development.

The first part of the course will encourage students to become acquainted with the history and typology of financial technology, the likely path for the adoption of financial technology, to the emergence of new business models and relevant regulatory policy. The second part of the course will help students to acquire a more concrete understanding of blockchain/distributed ledger technology, cryptocurrency and cryptoassets, as well as decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). On a more practical level, there will be a case discussion on blockchain and a guest lecture session from the industry as well.

This course will incorporate academic scholarly readings to provide the broad framework and theory on fintech and blockchain.
