[eNews] Nurturing FinTech Talent

The Fintech Career Accelerator Scheme ("FCAS") is a talent development scheme initiated by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) to nurture talent to meet the growing needs of Fintech in Hong Kong. Students from participating universities will be selected and arranged to join the scheme via a full-time, semester-based internship where interns will be co-supervised by banks, the HKMA and ASTRI on Fintech projects.

Three HKUST students - Jayden Chau (IS and Finance), Catherine Lam (IS) and Edwin Leung (Chemistry), who joined the program last year, were invited by the HKMA to participate in a panel and a ceremony that announced the launch of the upgraded FCAS Scheme on 31 January 2018. In the next edition of School Magazine Biz@HKUST, they will talk about their rewarding experience and the skills they need to prepare for the new FinTech era. Stay tuned!
