Unfortunately, we will not be able to host this course this year. Please take a look at our website for the full course offer. 

Business Innovation with Blockchain and Machine Learning

Financial technology, often shortened to FinTech, is an umbrella term for innovative technology in the financial sector. This summer course focuses on two disruptive technologies: blockchain and machine learning. It provides you with both the theoretical foundations as well as hands-on experience. Overall, it will be a pleasant mix of understanding the technologies and discussing the new possibilities that it has to offer to the financial sector.

New Financing Models for a Changing World

Since the credit crisis in 2008, banks have been focused on improving their image and balance sheets. The standards for providing loans have been raised to such an extent that Small and Medium Sized companies (SMEs) can hardly fund new investments. Start-ups are having difficulties in raising funds. This trend will continue and therefore SMEs are increasingly sourcing their funds in alternative ways. Other financial institutions too are introducing new and innovative models. In short, the financial world is changing, and new models of financing are becoming more popular. The Covid-19 crisis has made this transition even more necessary.
