Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - Sep 06, 2017 - CFTE is delighted to announce that its co-founder, Huy Nguyen Trieu, will deliver a module on the first Oxford Fintech Programme to teach students about innovation processes in finance, both in traditional finance institutions and Fintech startups. In addition to being co-founder of CFTE, Huy is an Associate Fellow at Oxford Saïd Business School.
The goal of the Oxford Fintech Programme (https://getsmarter.sbs.ox.ac.uk/oxford-fintech-online-programme-hm), which is taught online, is to provide students around the world with an overview of the changes happening in all segments of finance. It will give them the tools to use disruptive technology to generate innovative ideas and establish future enterprises. The programme consists of 10 modules and explores existing and emerging technologies around money and payments, markets and consumer experience and covering topics ranging from blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to crowdfunding and quantum computing.
Huy’s module has been designed to give students vital knowledge relevant to innovation in Finance 2.0 whilst also giving them the tools to successfully innovate. Huy will discuss core concepts important to innovation in an age of rapid technological change such as open and disruptive innovation methods. To help students strengthen their grasp of a complex topic, his module will clearly illustrate the road map to innovation – from sourcing new ideas to showing students that through experimentation they can overcome obstacles and challenges encountered in the innovation process. Ultimately, it will enable participants to develop a deeper understanding of the innovation process and how it differs for organisations of different size, from small startups to large institutions, and what lessons can be learned from non-financial companies. The module will make it easier for students to take solutions to market by helping combine technical know how with the soft skills that will enable them to collaborate better and develop leaderships qualities.
Among the other distinguished Instructors are David Shrier (Co-Convener), Associate Fellow at Saïd Business School, and Futurist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Nir Vulkan (Co-Convener), Associate Professor of Business Economics at Saïd Business School and a leading authority on e-commerce and market design; Alex Pentland, a Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and advisor to the Tencent Research Foundation and the Government of Estonia; and Peter Tufano, Dean of Oxford Saïd Business School and leading social entrepreneur. All instructors are global thought leaders in their respective fields and are recognized in both academia and industry. There are also expert perspectives from guest speakers ranging from the Chief Fintech Officer of the Monetary Authority of Singapore to the CTO of Ripple, providing real-world relevance to the programme.
Huy was Entrepreneur in Residence at Oxford Saïd where he helped launch the first Fintech lectures for MBAs and EMBAs. He said “There is such a large skills gap between what people know about Fintech and what they need to know. Universities have a very important role to play, and having had the privilege of working closely with Oxford for the last few years I have to say that Saïd has been ahead of the curve in innovating and offers a different way to learn.” He also added, with regards to the objectives of the programme “This project is extremely exciting as we get to reach so many people with content and skills that are vital for Finance 2.0.”

The programme will begin on 9th October, 2017, and run for 10 weeks in total.
