Why study AI in Fintech and Open Banking?
Big data powered by AI is dramatically reshaping the global financial services industry, and Open Banking promises to transform it further still. As Open Banking expands across the globe, the unleashing of data will open up new market opportunities with the potential to radically transform the industry, creating new winners, losers, rewards and challenges.

"In a world where big data and consequently data-driven businesses are disrupting all markets, it is critical for those working in finance to have a clear understanding of how data and AI are transforming their industry and what they can do about it--as an entrepreneur, as a decision maker in a larger firm, or as a regulator. This programme will first take the participants through the basics of AI, and then explore the many opportunities it provides in the data-intensive industry of finance while flagging the pitfalls they may face in adoption."
Pinar Ozcan, Programme Director and Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation,
Saïd Business School, University of Oxford
