WHO WE ARE
The Georgia FinTech Academy - a collaboration between Georgia’s fintech industry and the University System of Georgia - is a talent development initiative that gives learners the specialized educational experiences needed to enter the fintech sector regardless of where they live in the state or the college in which they enroll.
HOW WE BEGAN
Early in 2016, a team of USG faculty, academic and professional education leaders, and staff began collaborating with multiple fintech companies, state and community organizations, and the FinTech Atlanta Task Force. Applying the Program Model Canvas method, the team identified, documented and verified the competencies required of professionals pursuing a fintech career, laying the foundation for the creation of the Georgia FinTech Academy, which was officially launched in September 2018.
