The programme assets
The M2 Banking, Finance and Fintech has evolved vigorously since its original conception. This evolution has responded to the interactions with bankers and Fintech entrepreneurs, and tackles some of the key issues in those sectors. Just a few cases:
EM Normandie Banking, Finance & Fintech programme is unique in its rounded approach:
- Graduates are highly competent on financials and banking and on technology,
- And all of that is complemented by an entrepreneurial mindset.
Bankers admit that traditional banks have been hopeless at attending the financial needs of Small & Medium Enterprises (SME) that do not fit neatly into their credit scoring models:
- Fintechs detected that failing early on and are working on penetrating that segment.
- Our Advisory Committee has insisted that we need to produce professionals for that segment.
- The EM Normandie M2 in Banking, Finance and Fintech has a very defined focus on SME banking.
The hidden cost of poor governance in banking and Fintech can be extremely severe.
- Financial regulators and supervisors are demanding much higher standards of business ethics and corporate governance in banks.
- Board members and senior managers are eager to have competent professionals that help change the corporate culture.
- EM Normandie’s M2 is very strong on Business Ethics and Corporate Governance.
For all of the above reasons EM Normandie’s M2 in Banking, Finance and Fintech is unique amongst its peers and positions its graduates for fast-track careers in traditional banking; or in corporate finance in non-banking organisations; or for an entrepreneurial role in technology startups.
