We are the leaders in FinTech and Blockchain education
Learn FinTech, or, Financial Technology with our FinTech bootcamp. Choose to focus in areas including blockchain, payments, lending and more.
In order to build financial applications, we’ll first make sure your coding skills are sharp.

We’ll also introduce you to some popular platforms and widely used APIs in the industry including: Xignite, Yodlee/Envestnet, Reuters, Bloomberg, IBM, Monax, others.
Additionally, we’ll help you understand the data science concepts that are being used by FinTech companies so that you can apply these to your project work. Topics include: Pandas data analysis, machine learning and sentiment analysis, time series regression, overview of algorithms and statistics used in quant trading.
We also offer a blockchain track of the FinTech program which provides students the opportunity to delve deeply in the technology. For this track, all student projects relate to the blockchain.
We’ll touch upon blockchain in our more general FinTech too including topics such as smart contracts, cryptography, internet of money and more.
All students will build a portfolio of projects to showcase to potential employers. While some may choose to focus on blockchain, others choose to do their projects for real FinTech companies. Sample student projects include:
