Financial Technology

No financial transaction completed today, from simple checking accounts to complicated mergers and acquisitions, can be accomplished without technology. And the intersection of finance and business analytics with data and machine learning is at the cutting edge of the profession in the 21st century.

Seton Hall’s new Financial Technology (FinTech) major will enable you to bridge the gap between the finance and technology staffs, uniquely preparing you for the most well-paid and sought-after positions in the financial industry. You will study financial strategy and investment analysis alongside courses in programming and information modeling, and you will do this at one of only two universities in the United States currently offering an undergraduate degree designated concentration in FinTech.
