Financial technology, or fintech, is a broad term for the intersection of financial services and technology. Beyond convenience, fintech is rapidly changing the way we think about money: Who accesses it, who controls it, and how to protect it.
The global fintech market is predicted to reach $190 billion by 2026, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 13.9%.¹
Fintech is reshaping financial services and industries, as well as major banks, global markets, and the government regulations that oversee them all. Categories include peer-to-peer lending, digital wealth management, insurance, consumer finance, real estate, blockchain, automation, and more.
Fintech is one of the most in-demand global fields today. We’re committed to equipping you with the fundamental skills you need to make an impact while providing unparalleled support and resources before, during, and after your boot camp.
In 24 weeks, Rice University FinTech Boot Camp will prepare you with the theoretical and technical skills you need to stay ahead of the ever-evolving fintech industry.
The curriculum is delivered through live, online classes and high-quality coursework. Our instructors are fully vetted by the university and offer 1-on-1 virtual guidance to learners throughout the program.

“Being a part of the boot camp impacted my life in multiple ways. [It] provided me with tangible skills that I didn't have before (coding), provided me the ability to land a job that I wouldn't have been able to get before the boot camp, and it got my daughter interested in coding from watching me do homework assignments and projects.” Brett A.
“The boot camp has brought me back into coding, built my confidence and self-esteem, helped me network with other like-minded people, and showed me I can quickly bring my ideas to reality.” Jonathan O.
“I chose to attend because my BS in math was too general. This course allowed me to boost my resume and skills with needed field-related techniques. I was able to move out of a job I did not enjoy any longer into one that pays more, uses these abilities on a daily basis, and has ample opportunities for growth. If it were not for attending the Rice FinTech Boot Camp, I would not have gained the knowledge nor connections to make the career transition that I earned.” Eric C.
