The FinTech major is intended for students interested in learning about the application of technology to solve financial problems and studying the positive impact of these applications on society. From a mix of finance and computer information systems courses, students will develop a foundation in financial markets and institutions, data structures and queries, and the use of programming languages. Students are inspired to innovate and become entrepreneurs in FinTech as they learn how the interplay between finance and technology creates social innovations across different geographical regions around the world.
