Expand your skills and nurture an exciting future with advanced understanding of the new technologies, financial strategies and business models changing the face of business, including agribusiness.
New finance-based technologies and innovation strategies are revolutionising the global economy. Banking, investment and commerce are increasingly driven by the application of data, backed by transaction information held on new blockchain platforms. Lincoln University’s Master of Fintech and Investment Management grows the advanced skills you’ll need to evaluate and apply fintech priorities to finance, investment, information technology as well as agriculture.
It will cultivate your ability to help businesses (including agribusinesses) flourish through applying new disruptive technologies and leaner, data-driven business models. This programme is ideal if you already have a conventional finance background and want to upskill, or if you have a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated subject.
How you’ll grow
The rapid adoption of fintech worldwide has created escalating demand for trained professionals with both fintech and financial analysis skills. Your strong foundation in investment management plus fintech-related skills will give you a clear advantage in career roles in New Zealand and overseas. These include fintech product management, customer experience management, fintech compliance and risk control management, fintech start-ups analysis, wealth management, investment analysis, specialist agribusiness finance and consulting, information technology, agricultural and horticultural finance and investment consulting.
