First Online Specialisation in Open Banking launched by CFTE

Open Banking is one of the most important developments in finance, with banks from DBS to Societe Generale and Wells Fargo putting it at the core of their strategies. At the same time, new entrants are also exploiting these regulatory and market changes with hundreds of Fintech startups leveraging on Open Banking in the last 2 years alone.

In 2020 only, more than 100 Open Banking conferences and events will take place, and thousands of articles will be written around this important topic. However, many finance professionals will find it challenging to be part of this new trend because of the complexity of the topic and the fast-changing nature of the industry.

CFTE is therefore very pleased to present the ​world’s first online Specialisation in “Open Banking & Platforms in Finance”​, created in collaboration with the industry, and curated through feedback from hundreds of industry experts worldwide. Packed with the essential knowledge to understand and leverage Open Banking, this specialisation will help professionals understand Open Banking and apply it to their jobs.

Previous specialisations of CFTE have focused on important game changers of the industry, such as Fintech or Artificial Intelligence. This new specialisation is built around 5 courses, thereby ​unlocking a deeper understanding​ of each of the subtopics that fall under the Open Banking topic.

What courses does this Open Banking specialisation hold?
  • An Industry Overview of Open Banking
  • Business Model and Implementation of New Entrants
  • Business Model and Transformation of Incumbents
  • Regulation, Standards and Operational Risks
  • Technology and Security

From how Open Banking came to be, through to the commercial opportunities of implementing its vast suite of technologies, CFTE’s experts have designed an exhaustive curriculum that is certain to upskill learners across the finance sector, of all backgrounds. Whether you are embarking on a new journey or solidifying your role, this specialisation will provide insights from the perspective of established institutions from the likes of Wells Fargo, tech giants like Google, and successful startups such as Open Vector and Plaid.

Meet the senior lecturers, who alongside guest experts, will be guiding each course:

The Open Banking & Platforms in Finance specialisation features insights, key fundamentals and real-life case studies brought by 15+ contributing finance and technology thought leaders and experts, highlighting how Open Banking and the platform model is reshaping the finance industry worldwide. A must-have for financial professionals to leverage platforms and digital ecosystems towards driving your institutions forward in this new era of finance. Enrolment is now open for all who wish to participate.

“The digital platform economy is one of the strongest forces in today’s economy. Without a doubt, it will heavily affect the banking industry in the form of open banking.”

Stephan Murer, Owner of Murer Consulting, previously Group Chief Technology Officer at UBS

Despite the current systematic uncertainties, CFTE’s mission remains the same: to upskill learners and ensure that they are well-positioned to embrace FinTech 2.0.
