HKU FinTech Day 2018

October 29, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The University of Hong Kong will be hosting its 2nd FinTech Day to announce the launch of pioneering educational initiatives at the intersection of law, tech & entrepreneurship.

The event will bring together renowned academics and key industry players — including global leaders from China’s WeBank, Russia’s Tinkoff, Hong Kong’s TNG and Microsoft — in panel discussions, career talk, startup pitch and more. You will also be the first to witness the launch of the University’s new undergraduate programme (BASc FinTech), as well as updates on Introduction to FinTech MOOC and a sneak peek into the two upcoming MOOCs (FinTech Ethics & Risks and Blockchain and FinTech) in HKU’s FinTech Professional Certificate Program.

Join us in the celebration of the University’s research and teaching in FinTech and in dynamic discussions covering the latest topics including Digital Banking, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain.
