New finance-based technologies and innovation strategies are revolutionising the global economy. Banking, investment and commerce are increasingly driven by the application of data, backed by transaction information held on new blockchain platforms.

Lincoln University Canterbury’s Master of Fintech and Investment Management grows the advanced skills you’ll need to evaluate and apply fintech priorities to finance, investment, information technology as well as agriculture. 

It will cultivate your ability to help businesses (including agribusinesses) flourish through applying new disruptive technologies and leaner, data-driven business models.
