Digital banking innovation course overview

Drawing on the latest theories, case studies and practical examples, this three-day innovative banking Innovation course explores the challenges and opportunities for digital transformation in the banking sector. Participants will gain a better understanding of the digital & open banking landscape along with key strategies, business models and approaches to innovation.

Digital & open banking programme

You and your digital banking programme peers will think through the key challenges, disruptors and opportunities for banks to transition to a more integrated digital process, from an internal cultural shift all the way through to an 'outside-in' customer approach.  During the digital banking course you will have the opportunity to meet and learn from some the digital banking pioneers along the way. 

Who should attend?

The course is designed to provide a comprehensive overview for executives working in, responsible for, or interested in changing banking models, FinTech partnerships, innovation, the impact of technology and regulation in retail and commercial banking, innovations in the way clients and customers access and interact with financial products and who is leading the charge in these areas. We delve into the reasons that these changes have occurred, who is driving this change, who is funding the growth and who is creating new propositions, be they challenger or incumbent. We also look at the future of this new world order and what it might look like in years to come.

The learning experience was fantastic. The course brought together a renowned faculty of very experienced professionals that provided very relevant insights into and understanding of the digital banking innovation landscape globally. The course covered all topical areas of digital banking innovation with practical case studies and examples. But I guess what reflects the uniqueness of the course the most must be the diversity of participants. It was an ensemble of people from different walks of life from across the globe and the participatory nature of the course ensured that everyone could learn from anyone. I communicated with so many great minds and I will not be surprised to see different collaborative efforts come out of this stream. Learning and networking at the same time could not be any more fun, and I give kudos to the program team for a job well done and would be looking forward to more learning and networking opportunities of this nature from Imperial College UK.
