The Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship at Swinburne has partnered with judo bank and Banxa to offer its Master of Financial Technologies (FinTech) students a unique opportunity to learn from industry leaders.

Employers Demand Crypto Talent
With the meteoric growth of cryptocurrency and other financial technologies, employers are scrambling to keep up with the demand. The necessary talent ladder is simply not available, either in Australia or overseas. Product specialists, blockchain specialists and engineers are in high demand – and that’s just the technical side. The industry also needs people in less technical positions with an interest in and knowledge of cryptocurrency and blockchain.
Banxa CEO Holger Arians said: “This partnership will provide a collaborative space to develop Australian crypto talent and bridge the gap between demand and supply of talent in the industry.
“The crypto market is constantly evolving, and conversations with the next generation of FinTech leaders are key to shaping the future of technology and industry.”
