Our bank is currently undergoing a digital transformation journey and I felt it was the right time for to start learning about other products in the market, especially in the FinTech area just to be able to provide guidance to my bank on how they consider the risk elements of these products. I took the course because it was broad-based. It covered a lot of areas - the entrepreneurship part was an added body of knowledge from which I benefited in understanding startups and how to evaluate them. The live modules were the best part for me as we had the opportunity to listen to these industry experts about their ventures in a candid and open manner. They spent enough time with us to shed light on topics that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.
