Financial Services

Rapid technological advances, deregulation, mergers and acquisitions, and globalization have collectively contributed to a tsunami of change that has transformed the financial services industry. The role of technology has changed from a facilitator of business processes in financial services to a driver of changing business models.

EMTM students, alumni and professors point to the program’s value in helping financial services sector executives cope with the influence of rapid technological changes on realms such as cost control and revenue generation, new client and product development, and operational effectiveness. Students appreciate Wharton-led elective courses in areas such as Corporate Finance, Computational Finance and Real Options, as well as technology electives such as IT Security & Privacy and Data Mining.
