About AMTD FinTech Centre of PolyU Faculty of Business

With the support of AMTD Group Company Limited and AMTD Foundation Limited (AMTD), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) establishes the AMTD FinTech Centre of PolyU Faculty of Business (FTC). The purposes of the establishment of FTC are to enhance Hong Kong's leading position in financial technology, provide consultancy services to the financial industry, steer and conduct activities on FinTech education and professional training for students and the public, and demonstrate to the community our commitment for excellence in education, research and fulfilment of social responsibility.

A special strength of the FinTech Centre is the strong student body of the Faculty of Business' two flagship programmes, DBA and DMgt. This student body consists of quite a number of entrepreneurs in the FinTech businesses and top executives working in the FinTech areas. They can provide industrial and practical expert experience and opinions.

The Faculty of Business has about 200 full-time faculty members engaging in quality research and teaching in all of the major disciplines of business. Given the broad connections between our members at the centre and those "Tech" experts in mainland China, as well as between our members and some oversea experts, we would combine the resources to strive for the great innovation of Hong Kong FinTech.
