Concentration in Fintech
The Gabelli School of Business offers a three-course secondary concentration in fintech, co-designed by the finance and information systems faculty.
The role of technology in the business world in general, and the finance profession in particular, is exploding. The term “fintech” refers to a range of disruptive applications ranging from Bitcoin to high-speed trading to mobile banking. This secondary concentration is ideal for students who have an interest in these areas and who sense the inherent value in the point where finance and information systems meet.
