Industry Experts Sentiment on FinTechSG

“Singapore is one of the core innovation hubs in Asia, and is well-positioned to leverage FinTech to create new opportunities for the economy. We aim to harness this potential by enabling aspiring talents to learn about this fast-evolving field, and encourage innovative firms to bring their proof of concepts to life by offering on-the-job training for the students. As a part of the ongoing collaborative efforts among government, academia and the industry, we believe this programme will accelerate the nation’s digital growth and empower enterprises to leverage FinTech and bolster Singapore’s virtual economy.”


Professor Alex Siow

“From Grab to Shopee, we are using FinTech-powered platforms every day. Yet, many hesitate to dive in and learn about FinTech since it sounds distant. That is why the NUS-FinTechSG Programme is uniquely designed to make FinTech accessible, whether your background is in the arts, engineering, tourism, transportation or retail. The programme is designed in a pragmatic and approachable way, so that it can give everyone the skills needed to qualify for over 2,000 job openings in the banking and finance sectors.”
