About MBA in Fintech

Founded with the goal of equipping the next generation of students to seize the many possibilities at the crossroads of management, pure science, and technology, ADYPU Nuovos has been a driving force in this endeavour from its inception. We think India is on the threshold of unleashing massive growth in new industries such as finance, space technology, and health, etc., as an increasing number of businesses and decision-making processes rely on Web 3.0 and computer-based technologies, especially in Fintech.

The MBA in Fintech curriculum is designed to consider knowledge and learning as a never-ending process of interaction between students and instructors that extends well beyond the lecture hall.

We appreciate that our students will start the program with different levels of understanding of the course materials and with a more or less mature approach to learning. We will help students tap into their prior knowledge, test it against what is presented in class, and use that knowledge as a base on which to build a better understanding of the world through the tools of economics and finance.

Our duty as educators and programme designers is to assist students thrive in higher education and beyond. Students in university classrooms are nearing their careers. To achieve, an individual must be quicker, smarter, more creative, and able to learn from failures. How can we prepare pupils for competition? Our strategy is to provide them with actual challenges that have various answers and demand cooperation and competitiveness. This helps students become critical thinkers and excellent problem solvers for their jobs. Case study-based education stimulates critical thinking and improves students' verbal and writing abilities, particularly the capacity to present and justify their point of view in front of peers.

MBA modules are made to encourage both analytical and critical thinking, as well as to be creative.
