Mumbai: Rapid technology transformation, automation and the rise of Fintech also calls for long-term skill management programs to ensure future employability of the population. It is estimated that nearly 30 to 50 percent of jobs will be automated within the next few years and people will need completely different skillsets to remain masters (rather than slaves) during this next big technical revolution.

Singapore is a true role model in this space, having proactively taken steps to ensure that the right training is imparted to keep pace with the rapidly changing global landscape. The Singapore Fintech Consortium and the Fintech Center of Korea, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to work more closely in support of emerging technology in the financial sector.

In this context, S P Jain School of Global Management has launched a 6-month full-time Professional Postgraduate Program in Fintech – the first-of-its-kind in Asia – that aims at filling this void. The program is designed by veterans from within the Finance, Banking and Technology sectors, and takes a holistic approach focusing on the complex intricacies of the banking and financial services (BFSI) sector, challenges faced by them, and the development of consumer-focused, habit forming, scalable but secure solutions with better UI/UX using emerging technologies such as Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Robo-advisors, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Big Data, Internet of Thing and Internet on Things.

Currently, there is huge demand in the market for Fintech professionals and this program provides great value proposition for today’s youth to understand and join the Fintech revolution at an early stage. Many domestic and international companies like Barclays, DBS, ICICI Bank, Yes Bank, HDFC Bank, HP, Microsoft, Dell, Accenture, Intel, CISCO, Oracle, Lenovo, Fujitsu, Deloitte, Thomson Reuters and Capgemini are actively participating in the Fintech revolution, and are expected to attract large number of talent to this area.

S P Jain School of Global Management  claimed that the program is the first-of-its-kind in Asia, and is designed and developed by experts and leaders drawn from the Finance, Banking and Technology sectors.
