The program will examine the specific regulatory frameworks that apply to core banking and finance activities most relevant to financial technologies, including payments, lending and consumer protection issues. It will also focus on compliance-related issues facing disruptive and innovative technologies, such as Blockchain and Cryptocurrency, and conclude with a fireside chat examining one path to building a career in FinTech.
