Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) is launching a new Bachelor of Applied Computing in Finance (BACF) degree programme to meet the increasing demand from financial institutions and fintech firms for graduates with deep domain knowledge in finance and strong technological and analytical skillsets.

The undergraduate degree programme also aims to support the Singapore government’s initiatives to develop a tech-enabled financial sector and to build the talent pipeline to meet the financial industry’s need for talent with technological know-how.

Jointly offered by Nanyang Business School (NBS) and School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE), faculty from both schools will co-develop and co-teach several newly designed integrated courses such as Blockchain in Finance, Machine Learning in Finance, and Product Management.

Both schools will also co-design and co-supervise a year-long industry-based applied research project that requires students to design and develop financial applications based on problem statements submitted by industry partners.

The Degree of Bachelor of Applied Computing in Finance will be a full-time programme that is structured to be completed in four years and will commence in the 2024 academic year.
