Zuliana Zaludin Heriot-Watt University, Malaysia
Financial technology (Fintech) refers to the technology that enables businesses to access and manage their financial situation digitally or to conduct financial transactions. Based on literature and the current demand from the industry, the importance of equipping students with fintech knowledge is clear. But are academics ready for the challenge? A study was conducted among academics to get their opinion on whether they have sufficient knowledge in fintech that will enable them to update the curriculum and teaching & learning materials. This study will create awareness for academics to start preparing themselves to adapt and embrace the transition to Fintech.
