   Technology-enabled innovation is disrupting traditional financial services. Students will discover how digital currencies, Blockchain, Smart Contracts, and Artificial Intelligence are changing the financial landscape. Robo-advising, peer-to-peer lending, equity crowdfunding, and mobile payments are examples of this changing environment. Entrepreneurial ventures that improve payment methods, lending, and other financial services challenge traditional banks as well as other financial intermediaries. The dynamic nature of this competitive rivalry is studied through numerous real-world examples.
