The Master then covers digital innovation technologies that play a preeminent role in Fintech, such as big data, cybersecurity, distributed ledger technologies, smart contracts, blockchain, machine learning, natural language processing and data visualisation. Finally, the programme enters into the Fintech domain, analysing how these technologies/methodologies can transform classical intermediation activity and how they can disintermediate traditional players in a peer-to-peer perspective.
