[eNews] HKUST x Tencent Fintech Mentorship Program Launches

Fintech is an emerging and growing industry that drives the innovation of financial services globally. At HKUST Business School, we recognize the increasing demand for fintech talents. We are dedicated to equipping students with the right knowledge and skills and preparing them for a bright career in fintech.

This summer, the Fintech Research Project is joining hands with Tencent Finance Academy (Hong Kong) to launch the first HKUST x Tencent Fintech Mentorship Program for HKUST students who are passionate about the industry.

The eight-week program takes place online from June to August and aims to broaden students’ exposure to fintech. The program also deepens their understanding and application of different fintech concepts in real business situations. Mentored by industrial experts from Tencent, students will research real-world fintech problems and examine topics related to banking, blockchain, user experience, and artificial intelligence. Students will also gain insight into the authentic fintech environment and generate innovative and unique ideas for their research project.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a certificate issued by Tencent Finance Academy. Students with good performance may be referred by their mentors to participate in Tencent Finance Academy’s annual Fintech Competition (Final Round) and the Fintech Talent Nurturing Program. 

Interested students can submit their registration form here on or before June 10, 2020.

Fintech Research Project organizes a wide range of programs and activities that connects students with industry professionals to promote fintech learning. Follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest fintech education updates.
