FinTech: Creative Destruction
A Road Map for the Future of Finance
FinTech is “creative destruction”. It´s about how technology is upending finance, and both destroying some traditional finance roles and creating new ones in your post-Master career. In this class, you will see the illustration of what´s happening by looking at some stories/mini case studies across the diverse FinTech landscape:
1) Lego and WealthTech
2) Cryptocurrencies - How to value something virtual that doesn’t pay anything?
3) Payments – How disruptive innovation might have predicted the success of M-Pesa.
4) The Five Forces of Alibaba
5) Crowdfunding – Are investing crowds wise or mad?
