ACCT 426 - Emerging Technologies in Accounting and Finance


Credits: 3
The Financial Services and Accounting industries are in the process of being turned upside down by emerging technologies known as “FinTech”. This course is an opportunity to not only learn about these technologies but also to understand what is driving these changes and to consider what the future might hold for careers in these industries. Among other technologies, students will learn about Blockchain, Cryptoassets, and Artificial Intelligence. Students will also connect with professionals to understand how they are navigating the FinTech landscape and which skills students will need to gain to succeed in this new reality. This is not a “calculation” course - instead, time will be spent reading, watching, researching, and - most importantly - communicating findings.
