I have been in retail banking for 12+ years and was looking to shift to
FinTech, specifically payments. This programme helped me get a deep understanding of concepts and the industry, which eventually helped me get the job I have always aspired for.
Amit Tyagi, Business Development Manager, MasterCard
As AVP, retail lending, I work with a huge customer base and interact with several internal teams. This course has helped me understand relevance and application of FinTech in day to day retail banking functions, e.g. how to analyze and interpret huge volumes of data, block chain applications, etc. It will definitely help in future job/ career changes but what really matters to me now is that I am able to do my current job with a lot more clarity and confidence.
