When Wall Street Met Main Street – Real vs Virtual Economy
This conference is in the 3rd Fintech Education Series, which aims to promote financial technology education in town. This event is part of the core agenda of the HK FinTech Week 2019, Asia’s most anticipated international financial technology event, bringing together more than 10,000 executives, entrepreneurs, investors, regulators and academics from China, Asia and across the world. We take advantage of this opportunity to bring together the academia and industry participants, providing a platform to carry out fruitful and productive discussions, encourage the exchange of ideas and promote future collaboration opportunities. 2019 marks the second anniversary of the Bachelor of Engineering programme in Financial Technology (FinTech) launched by CUHK, the first ever FinTech undergraduate programme in Hong Kong. This is also the inauguration year of the Master of Science programme in Financial Technology. With the talents in these programmes and the innovative ideas in the market, we see an all-win situation in bridging the University and the industry together. It is beneficial for the students to widen their exposure and have more interactions with the industry. Faculties can share their research results and seek partnership with fintech corporations. Industry practitioners can leverage on the forefront research to take their fintech business some steps further.
