Strathclyde Business School has been at the forefront of the innovative and ground-breaking FinTech movement for a sustainable transformation of global finance for the better. It has successfully pioneered the UK’s first FinTech Masters (2017) and now the first Fintech Masters in the Region.

In response to the ever-evolving role of technology in shaping the future of industries globally, and a particular demand for FinTech education in one of its most established markets – Bahrain - Strathclyde Business School and its partner, Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) has introduced an MSc Financial Technology (FinTech), fully delivered in Bahrain on a part-time basis.

This new Masters degree will bolster Bahrain’s position as a leading FinTech hub in the region, and offer ambitious individuals the opportunity to gain a cutting edge qualification, delivered by Strathclyde academics, without having to take a year out to complete studies. The intensive two year programme will offer students a rigorous core academic curriculum combined with the entrepreneurial and innovative elements of the “FinTech Revolution”. It includes a selection of financial methods, programming, data analytics and regulations and technology, with a particular emphasis on how these different subject areas come together to create new financial services and products.
