The DFinTech Programme aims to expose students to how digital changes impact the financial industry and to equip them with state-of-the-art knowledge in the FinTech area. The DFinTech Programme is designed to integrate academic study with management practice to transform students into “scholar-leaders” in the FinTech field.
To enhance the international dimension and academic vigour of PolyU DFinTech, we have established collaborations with leading international institutions to provide opportunities for students to join their various fintech-related programmes.
Core Subjects^ (any one)
Elective Subjects^ (any six)
* Independent Studies in FinTech is only offered to students who are unable to follow the programme’s normal pattern of study due to exceptional circumstances such as illness or a work posting outside Hong Kong; these students can enrol in this elective subject in a particular semester.
^ All subject details (e.g. subject description form, offering pattern, class timetable etc.) are subject to continuous review and change. Not all subjects will be offered in a given year, subject to factors such as staff availability, student enrolment, programme resources and so on.
Attendance at the 2 Residentials is compulsory.
DFinTech Residential 1 is a 2/3-day mandatory orientation workshop scheduled for the beginning of the programme in September.
DFinTech Residential 2 is a research workshop that is normally held in May/June after students have completed the required taught subjects. The main purpose of the workshop is to give students an opportunity to present their thesis proposals and to prepare them for writing their theses.
Students must pass the Compulsory Subjects, 1 Core Subject and at least 4 Elective Subjects before beginning their theses. In the Thesis, students need to integrate and apply what they have learned to critically and rigorously examine a topic of interest. They are challenged to make an important contribution and/or provide innovative insights for management practice.
