What our Alumni say about the specialisation

The Open Banking & Platforms Specialisation was definitely a deep dive for me into the world of Fintech. I was pleasantly surprised at how comprehensive the online learning material was and the courses were planned superbly well, bringing me a broad yet deep exposure of the topic.
What I liked the most is that all the courses are led by industry experts. This establishes credibility and builds a strong foundation to move ahead. Also, the cherry on the top is the Expert Talks after each course. My current organisation has already embraced concepts of Open Banking across different products that we offer and I have been able to apply my learning accordingly.

Most frequent questions and answers about our specialisation

The global Open banking market is forecasted to reach $43.15 billion by 2026. With deal sizes expected to grow exponentially – Visa has acquired Fintech Plaid for $5.3 billion; organisations like DBS, Société Générale and Wells Fargo also consider Open banking to be a strategic pillar in their business model. Open banking is here, and it will fundamentally transform how the Financial Services industry operates. Demanded by consumers, encouraged by regulators, and powered by technologies – the structural uptake on Open banking drives many organisations to a profound era of digital ecosystems and platform business models. This shift creates a significant tension on today’s Financial Service value chain with the emergence of innovative business models, new regulatory frameworks and modern technologies to support it.
