(formerly known as Diploma in Business Applications)
FinTech, or Financial Technology, is any technology and innovation that aims to compete with traditional methods in the delivery of financial services. It is an emerging industry, where new applications, processes, products, or business models consist of one or more complementary financial services, and which are provided as an end-to-end process on the Internet.
Our Diploma in Financial Technology (DFT) equips you with the skills and knowledge you need to be at the forefront of the dynamic FinTech industry. You will gain a good grounding in key FinTech concepts, business models and technologies, as well as enjoy internships with renowned banks and leading FinTech companies.
By the time you graduate, you can join the industry as Application Developers in the FinTech sector and develop innovative disruptive solutions for organisations. You can also choose to launch your own start-ups with the support of RP’s Entrepreneurial Immersion Programme (EIP).
