You will also be the first to witness the launch of the University’s new undergraduate programme (BASc FinTech), as well as updates on Introduction to FinTech MOOC and a sneak peek into the two upcoming MOOCs (FinTech Ethics & Risks and Blockchain and FinTech) in HKU’s FinTech Professional Certificate Program.
