Swinburne Masters in FinTech in partnership with industry leaders

Swinburne’s Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship, in partnership with Judo Bank and Banxa, offers its Master of Financial Technology (FinTech) students the unique opportunity to learn from industry leaders.

The world of fintech is changing rapidly as more and more markets begin to recognize and regulate cryptocurrencies. Whether you work in technology and product development, or have a background in business, finance, marketing, strategy or sales, these are exciting times to start a career in fintech. Swinburne’s MSc in Financial Technology enables students from any background to be part of the evolution of FinTech.

Dr Dimitrios Salampasis, Director of Swinburne Master of Financial Technology, said: “Judo Bank and Banxa, together with our existing industry partners, have created an educational prototype of global best practice. Both industry and student needs are addressed and embedded in the degree .”

A partnership built on people and technology

Judo Bank is known for working with SMEs and focusing on customer relationships. Banxa is the world’s first listed payment service provider (PSP) and digital asset industry regulatory technology platform, specializing in providing seamless fiat-to-cryptocurrency conversion for the digital asset industry, supporting giants such as Binance, OKX, and Kucoin.

The two organizations will co-create content, host lectures, provide case studies and provide students with access to the company’s network.

Joseph Healy, CEO of Judo Bank, said: “We are delighted to partner with Swinburne and support the next generation of fintech leaders.

“Sharing insights into our relationship-led business model and the important role technology plays in it is a valuable story for fintech students starting their careers.”

Employers desperately need crypto talent

With the rapid development of cryptocurrencies and other financial technologies, employers are scrambling to meet the demand. The scale of talent required is not available in Australia or internationally. Product specialists, blockchain specialists, and engineers are in high demand — and it’s just technical. The industry also needs people with less technical roles with an interest and knowledge of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

Holger Arians, CEO of Banxa, said: “This partnership will provide a collaborative space to build Australia’s crypto talent and bridge the gap between supply and demand for talent in the industry.

“The crypto market is constantly evolving, and dialogue with the next generation of fintech leaders is critical to shaping the future of technology and the industry.”
