Ivey Business School adds fintech program to Executive Education Program

The Ivey Business School at Western University has announced the addition of a fintech-focused program to its existing Executive Education program portfolio.

The program “Mastering FinTech: Strategies for the Future” will be led by the co-directors of Ivey's own Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab. It aims to prepare the participants for disruption from fintech players, how to build a response plan, and ways to capitalize on the opportunities that fintech presents. The institute said that the program is particularly relevant to players in industries vulnerable to the threat of fintech disruption: finance, banking, accounting, insurance, IT, supply chain, and e-commerce firms.

"The Canadian business market has dictated to us the key competencies needed to remain relevant and successful in today's global business environment. I'm pleased to be able to address those needs with the launch of these six programs," said Mark Healy, Ivey's Executive Director of Executive Education.

The fintech program will be launched alongside five other programs, which include Corporate Reputation Management, Preparing for Disruption, Leading with Business Analytics, Design Thinking: Driving Innovation, and FamilyShift.

"These tailored Executive Education experiences are designed to address important identified trends and threats facing organizations today. For business leaders, there is no established roadmap when it comes to dealing with issues associated with reputation management, disruption, big data, new financial models, remaining competitive through the use of innovation, and family succession planning. With the research and expertise in relation to these topics that reside in-house at Ivey and with our industry partners, we're well-positioned to address these issues and help leaders through transformative behaviour change."

According to the official release, all six programs will commence in the fall of 2017 and will be delivered through Ivey's Toronto-based Tangerine Leadership Center or London, Ontario-based Spencer Leadership Centre.
