Talent Curriculum 

Through the formal educational curriculum of our partner institutions, the Georgia FinTech Academy helps students gain course credits and certifications. The Georgia FinTech Academy also works to develop and pilot new forms of credentials that employers find attractive in candidates. LearningCloud, for example, is a virtual environment for project-based learning and simulated-development environments.

Experiential learning

Experiential learning is highly valued by employers and provides immense benefit to students. The Georgia FinTech Academy pulls on resources from the University System of Georgia to match fintech company opportunities for internships, apprenticeships, and summer work with the expressed interests of students. This creates new pathways to success from freshman year onward through graduation, and into first job placement.

Professional learning

It's never too late for a change, or to learn new skills. The Georgia FinTech Academy is here to support both professionals wishing to make a career switch to fintech and those seeking to sharpen their knowledge through executive and continuing education programs. The Georgia FinTech Academy Boot Camp is one such program devoted to imparting relevant and topical fintech skills in a short amount of time.

Innovation-Driven research

The Georgia FinTech Academy isn't just advancing curriculum that relies on the latest research—it conducts the research itself. The Academy will play a pivotal role in growing fintech product and technical innovation capability and output by producing a continuous stream of recognizable, valued, and commercially viable innovations.
