Congratulations to students from the Fintech class (offered by the Department of Finance and Decision Sciences to MSc in Corporate Governance and Compliance Program, with our Associate Director, Ms Queenie Lee, being the lecturer/mentor) for being the champion of the competition.

Please find enclosed video clip with an overview of the winning project from the team, comments on the role of universities in Fintech development in Hong Kong by Mr Darron Sun, Vice Chairman of IFTA and sharing from Mr Benjamin Wong, Founder of Transwap & one of the jurors on his view of the secret to success.
Our adjunct professors Dr. Dorothy Chau and Mr. Jason Lau joined the conversation at the session titled “The Talent Deficit: When AI Demand Far Outstrips Supply” at the WSJ Pro Artificial Intelligence Executive Forum organized by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ). Themed “Unlocking value in the new normal”, the virtual forum was held on 31 March 2021.
Having three industry leading experts explain the intricate landscape they have built their careers on was an important aspect of our ongoing class discussion. Sam, Saravana, and Johnson were patient with our questions and made sure to dive into the details of cybersecurity foundational practices. While our questions led the discussion the three industry experts made sure to cover specific topics that we had been taught in our coursework. This made us students understand the importance of our teachings in a completely new way.
Once again, thanks Sam, Saravana and Johnson from Crypto.com for enlightening our students.
