Beyond the distance to design a new Master in FinTech: a great start of TRUST Project!

In January 2020 the TRUST project, focused on financial technology and digital innovation to modernise and develop curricula of Vietnamese and Philippines universities, started with the enthusiasm and the commitment of the all partner organisations. The consortium consists in an extraordinary synergy among European Universities, an Italian FinTech Company, Vietnamese and Philippines Universities and, finally, a FinTech Philippine Company. Despite of the difficult situation due to the Covid-19 spread around the world, TRUST consortium greatly scheduled three Kick off meeting online sessions. In fact, Guglielmo Marconi University, the project coordinator, was forced to cancel the face to face kick-off meeting in London at the end of March. In order to proceed with the project activities, three online sessions were organised on 3rd, 7th and 10th April 2020.

The most important discussion was about the new Master Design, the duration, the accreditation compliance, the modules, the software and finally, the blended structure. The academic partners demonstrated high-qualified skills as well as the industry sector that provided an essential perspective to point out a future competitive Master in FinTech.

The other sessions were focused on project’s aims presentation, research goals and deadlines, dissemination, and quality assurance. All the online sessions provided a solid ground to start the project activities, in particular the desk and fieldwork researches.
