About the FinTech Focus
FinTech (Financial Technology) is a fast-growing $30 billion business sector that
involves the use of technology to facilitate millions of every day financial transactions.
Atlanta is the hub of this industry, with more than 100 FinTech companies processing
70 percent of all credit, debit, and pre-paid card transactions in the United States,
amounting to $3.5 trillion annually. Atlanta and the state of Georgia are home to
not only large FinTech employers such as First Data, Fiserv, Equifax, Global Payments,
NCR, and Incomm, but also a growing community of startups and innovators such as Acculynk,
Cardlytics, GreenSky, Kabbage, and Parkmobile. Combined, the FinTech industry employs
more than 30,000 people, with demand for skilled professionals growing rapidly.
The Georgia Full-Time MBA program’s area of focus in FinTech enables students to acquire
the necessary academic content within a project-based learning environment to start
their professional careers in this fast-growing industry.
