POLIMI Graduate School of Management, Politecnico di Milano’s business school, and Reply, a company that has made innovation and technological specialisation its flagship, join forces to create a training path for excellence, which is aimed at preparing the professionals the industry needs to face future challenges.
Enrolment is now open for POLIMI Graduate School of Management Master's in "Digital Finance", which aims to offer highly qualified students a professional specialisation in financial services (fintech and insurtech) with a practical and experiential approach to innovation and new technologies such as: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Cloud.
The postgraduate course will start in April 2023 and will last 18 months. The Master’s includes a series of introductory courses on Business Management and Financial Services followed by a specialisation course aimed at training technical experts in the latest digital technologies (e.g. Cloud, AI, ML, etc.) applicable to the Financial Services market.
The lessons will be held online based on an executive model (lesson delivery will be on Fridays and Saturdays, for approximately 2 weekends per month) and the professors will be a mix of POLIMI Graduate School of Management academics and Reply specialists to combine theoretical lessons, workshops, hackathons and projects. The course will also include face-to-face meetings (2 or 3 over the course of the programme) at Politecnico di Milano laboratories or Reply offices. In the final stage of the course, students will carry out a 6-month work project at Reply, where they will put into practice the knowledge acquired in the classroom working in groups on live projects. The entire course is in English and open to international candidates.
The Master’s, at its first edition, is aimed at students with a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Cybersecurity, Automation Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Telecommunication Engineering which must be achieved by 31 March 2023 for three-year degrees, or by 31 July 2023 for Master's degrees.
