Why study 'crypto' policy?

‘Crypto’ is the most visible element of digital finance. Assets such as Bitcoin or Tether make daily headlines. Central banks are actively considering the introduction of CBDC. Leading financial institutions are slowly but steadily re-orienting their activity, using novel types of assets and infrastructures. Policy makers around the globe take action to organise this market in a way so that it is efficient and serves the economy and society as a whole.

As an executive, it is essential to prepare for this change now.

What Students Say About Us

It's a very interesting and trending topic that everyone thinks they understand, but few actually do. I am glad to say that this course has contributed to my knowledge in the relevant areas. Moreover, the logical breakdown of Professor Paech's thoughts in determining whether a product or service needs regulating could be transmitted in any given regulatory question.

In this well-coordinated and concisely structed course, you can get insights on how FinTech is working and how to justify difference in legal and regulatory elements (if any) between Fintech and traditional finance tools. Through discussing from rather conceptual perspectives, Philipp’s arguments are very good guidance to understand what is happening in the fields - which is not always easy by just being exposed to Fintech news/marketing materials only. He also draws on examples and cases studies from around the globe which help to understand his dense conceptual arguments. Highly recommended for both legal practitioners (who want to understand this hot topic in a nutshell) and students (who want to start his/her voyage in uncharted territory) in any jurisdictions.

The FinTech Foundations course provides you with a great opportunity to explore the current trends in the area of FinTech and to understand the discussions on how to regulate the new actors and activities in this field. Prof. Paech's teaching methodology makes it easier to understand very complex issues, in a very structured way.

This course fits well both beginners and more advanced people because instead of providing concepts and definitions it gives students a map to develop knowledge and critical thinking on this subject. The mentoring classes are a must! There you will meet people from all around the world and from different industries to discuss relevant questions and concrete issues.

This course offers an analytical understanding of rapidly transforming FinTech space. It covers interesting case studies from around the world. The course platform has video lectures, live coaching, mentoring and their recordings (in case you miss any!) among many other things. Most importantly, you can benefit from Philipp’s unique perspective and rich experience as chairman of the EU Commission’s expert group on Fintech regulation. This course simplifies the massively complex subject of Fintech, directing you to focus on the important aspects. It will be relevant for students and professionals at all levels. I would highly recommend this course!

This is a great course for someone desirous of learning the basic building blocks of Fintech, the related technology and regulatory environment. The course will provide you with excellent tools for examining Fintech, specially from the context of regulation and policy making. The material is engaging yet easy to follow.

The FinTech Foundations Course was a wonderful course - my understanding of FinTech has deepened tremendously. The course has not only provided a great overview of the landscape of FinTech, but also imparted various important methods of analysis to further my ability to navigate the dynamic world of FinTech. It was certainly challenging for someone with little to no knowledge of FinTech to attend the course, but with some personal research, it was possible to fully grasp the content and apply the skills from the course when examining the Fintech world. Would highly recommend the course!
