OSU’s Fisher College Launches Fintech Micro-Credential

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A new graduate credential offering from The Ohio State University’s Max M. Fisher College of Business is preparing professionals with introductory-level knowledge of the emerging financial technology that organizations are using to improve and automate the delivery of financial services.

The Fintech Micro-Credential is a two-course, 4.5-credit-hour program that offers post-baccalaureate professionals the opportunity to explore the fundamentals of fintech and all the ways it connects with leading industries regionally, nationally and globally. The program is offered through Fisher’s Executive Education Department.

“The Fintech Micro-Credential represents Fisher’s latest step in our dedication to continuous innovation and workforce development,” said Anil K. Makhija, dean and John W. Berry, Sr. Chair in Business. “With fintech representing the second-largest industry sector in Ohio by GDP, this micro-credential will help professionals and graduate students establish a critical, baseline knowledge of the technological levers and mechanisms that drive business and finance today.”

The program features two courses – Introduction to Fintech and AI and Machine Learning for Business – and builds on Fisher’s portfolio of online learning offerings. Working with Fisher faculty and program partners, students enrolled in the program will complete one project in each course. 

Enrollment for spring semester 2024 is open to all professionals who have completed a four-year undergraduate degree, including current Ohio State graduate students.
