    The aim of the Master in Technologies in the Financial Sector: FinTech (formerly Master in Computer Technologies Applied to the Financial Sector) is to provide the graduate students with the knowledge needed to develop financial markets-oriented software. The development covers all stages of the life-cycle of the software, from conception to maintenance, analysis, design, implementation and verification.

    This Master, developed from an original idea of Comunytek Consultores S.L. and promoted by different companies of the area, is a Master with a strong professional approach which offers specialization in a sector where labor needs – computer technologies and ICTs professionals - are very high.

    In the Master in Computer Technologies Applied to the Financial Sector, the students receive training in technological aspects, although also in financial markets’ key aspects. f you want to learn more about the four areas covered by this Master, you can see the First Conference on Computer Technologies in the Financial Sector, that was held at BBVA Innovation Center.
