This course provides you with the exact knowledge and practical skills you need to thrive in this turbulent 21st century. It places two of the world’s megatrends into focus that all of us experience on a daily basis: the digital revolution and the need for sustainable development. In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis the world is at a turning point and we individually can contribute to not letting digital inequalities increase further but to harnessing the digital financial innovations towards an inclusive and sustainable prosperity for all of us.
This course will showcase that digital financial technologies, the so called FinTech, have the potential to bring us closer to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), if well implemented. While listening and interacting with well-known experts, you will explore the SDGs and the different digital financial innovations, as tools to apply in your area of work. You will learn from inspiring business cases, regulatory examples, and development projects how to use FinTech when prioritizing sustainability and financial inclusion. During the 4-week course, you will have the opportunity to develop your own project, receive feedback from experts in the area, and leave with essential knowledge and hands-on experience to create a digital and sustainable environment.
