Move Forward With FinTech



The Master of Science in Financial Technology (MSc FinTech) is a part-time, hybrid program that aims to develop in-depth knowledge of business models and technologies shaping the global financial sector. Students will go through an intensive 24-month, 8-term program structure where they complete 6 core courses, 2 elective courses of their choice, and present a dissertation. Several learning goals are set as students gather combined expertise in finance, computing, risk, and behavioral science.

The program is jointly delivered by the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) and Manchester Metropolitan University (Manchester Met), giving students a bigger advantage to #MoveForwardWithFintech. Manchester Met is a triple-accredited institution in the UK (EQUIS, AACSB, AMBA). Manchester Met is also the leading university provider for degree apprenticeships*.

Upon completion, students will receive a dual award from AIM and Manchester Met that reflect one field of specialization and certify that graduates have fulfilled the stringent requirements of both higher education institutions with skills and competencies at par with international standards.

The intake for the Master of Science in Financial Technology (MSc FinTech) is in January. Classes are held every Monday and Wednesday night from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The hybrid setup allows students to take their classes on-site at the AIM Campus or online via Zoom.
