THE MAPUA University offers a new Fintech and Regulatory Innovation Program starting in April next year to address the growing demands of the financial services industry.

The program is in partnership with Fintech Alliance Philippines and powered by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.

According to the school, FTRI is an online tutor-led program that is also the first off-campus Cambridge Fintech and Regulatory Innovation Program in the ASEAN region, with localized content tailored to the Philippine setting.

With its strategic objective of transforming itself fully into a digital-driven educational institution, Mapua was chosen to introduce this one-of-a-kind program to Filipino fintech professionals.

University President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Reynaldo Vea stressed the importance of arming senior policymakers, administrative officials, and key leaders to effectively direct and oversee the fintech sector.

“We hope that through Mapúa’s Fintech and Regulatory Innovation program, which is powered by CCAF of the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, and in partnership with FTAP, we can help enable the administration and business leaders to create standardized measures, and appropriate safety nets that will safeguard the economy, enterprises, and consumers as fintech continues to evolve and grow,” Vea said.

As first off-campus CFTRI program in the ASEAN region, Mapua’s FTRI program is aimed at:

1. Empowering Filipino financial regulators, policymakers, and industry practitioners

2. Equipping them with the knowledge they need to form evidence-based policy responses to the development of fintech

3. Creating a global network where industry professionals and experts can share their knowledge, solutions to challenges, and recommendations in advancing fintech.
